Job Duties:
Irrigators to perform the following duties: Workers will be responsible for starting and stopping surface and subsurface irrigation with syphon tubes as well as monitoring the elevation in head water by opening and closing irrigation gates.

All products follow a similar lifecycle that corresponds to the following: an irrigation before planting, which would be described as a flat water.

In addition, workers will be required to perform all operations related to sprinkler pipe irrigation, maintenance, and storage.
