URI Irrigation Project 2022

What have you been up to this summer? Down in Kingston, at the University of Rhode Island, Local 528 members working for the University of Rhode Island Lands and Grounds Department have spent a portion of summer installing irrigation on the main quadrangle. The project is a collaboration between Local 528 members and their supervisors within Lands and Grounds.

In what has been an unusually hot and dry summer Local 528 members have worked through these difficult conditions. Thanks to the joint effort of our members and their supervisors the lawn at the University's center piece will flourish. The irrigation our members installed is a major upgrade and will be a significant factor in the overall improvement of the University landscape.

Thank you to the men and women of Local 528 working in URI Lands and Grounds. This effort is something to be proud of and will contribute to an enhanced student experience at the University of Rhode Island.
