Abstract/Contents:Details potential winterizing strategies for irrigation equipment on athletic fields. Mentions that "water in your system can be your worst enemy in the winter." Suggests to "begin your winterization by shutting off the water to the irrigation system at the isolation valve." Addresses the need to winterize drainage systems along with irrigation systems and includes recommendations to consider during the initial installation of drainage systems to keep them in good condition during cold weather.
