Water-Smart Landscaper Training
Our goal is to ensure that contractors doing business in Aurora follow city code, understand water conservation best practices and can tell their clients about our conservation programs. Here is a list of Water Smart Landscape Contractors that attended the training class in the last three years. The 2014 trainings have already occured and additional trainings will not be scheduled until 2015.
