Flood Damage In The SE Region
Rainfall totals from eight to 23 inches have been reported in Alabama and Georgia over the last ten days. Severe flooding accompanied these rains and many golf courses are cleaning up in the aftermath of this 100 year storm. Irrigation systems, pump stations, and satellite boxes were damaged at many golf courses. Irrigation Consultant Bob Scott, of Irrigation Consultant Services (Conyers, GA), has been kind enough to offer the following information to help golf course superintendents get their systems back on line.

- PUMP HOUSE
A weakness of a variable frequency drive (VFD) is water damage. In most cases, both the drive and the programmable controller need to be replaced. The control valve system usually will work ok.
- FIELD SATELLITE CONTROLLERS
- EXPOSED PIPE
Hope this helps in a small way from all the headaches of water damage.
