In 2021, Eagan launched a Smart Irrigation Program to help residents save money on their irrigation systems and reduce annual water use. To date, the City has saved tens of millions of gallons of irrigation water through this program.

How it works:

  • Sign up for the program at (this portal is outside of the City of Eagan's website),
  • have an irrigation system evaluation performed,
  • receive a comprehensive report about your system,
  • have your old controller professionally replaced with a new “Smart” weather-based controller,
  • be trained on your new Smart system.

The details:

A City-sponsored conservation program covers approximately half of the list cost. Participants can expect to recover nearly all their investment within the first year or two of the program and will continue to see savings throughout the life of their system.

The City is partnering with Safe Water Commission and Hunter Industries to perform the system evaluation, install the Smart irrigation controllers, and train homeowners on how to use the mobile application.

You are eligible for Eagan’s Smart Irrigation Program if you have:

  • A working irrigation system
  • a non-weather-based irrigation controller in your home or garage
  • strong and reliable Wi-Fi.
