City of GreeleyThe City of Greeley Water Conservation Program continues its support of local landscapers in obtaining professional certification. 

Any owners or employees of landscape and irrigation companies who install or maintain properties in Greeley and who take the Landscape Industry Certified Technician (CLT-I) exams in Irrigation for the first time can receive a rebate from the City of Greeley.  

The rebate will only be granted if the applicant achieves certification by passing the written exam and hands-on testing. 

  • $275 rebate for Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado Members (ALCC) 

  • $525 rebate for non-members 

“Irrigation technology has significantly changed over the last few years. Products have been designed and invented to address both water savings and efficient application of water,” said Kevin Hartley, Water Conservation Specialist with the City of Greeley. “In order to help working professionals get the best use of these products, we are offering a financial incentive to upgrade skills and certifications.” 

Companies with certified staff will be added to the City of Greeley’s list of preferred landscape contractors. The companies will stay on the list as long as they employ techs with current certifications. 

Please contact Kevin Hartley at 970-336-4228 or [email protected] if you have any questions or would like to apply for the rebate. Registration and testing information is available at alcc.com/certification.
