The Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper (QWEL), a program recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a WaterSense certification program, provides approximately 20 hours of educational training to professional landscapers to improve efficiencies in water use. Participants receive instruction on proper plant selection for the local climate and irrigation system design, maintenance, programming and operation.

Recognizing that landscape water use is one of the largest components of urban water use nationwide, the Washington County Water Conservancy District started hosting QWEL trainings to local landscapers in 2013. The next QWEL training will be scheduled soon.  Training attendees will receive a certification recognized by the Utah Nursery and Landscape Association, Utah State University Extension and other local and state water entities. QWEL certification is required to participate in the district’s rebate programs.

County residents who use QWEL-certified landscapers benefit from a water-efficient landscape that will save water and money.
