Irrigation on #7 Back Up and Running

     The irrigation leak that was found on the 7th tee of THE PLAYERS Stadium course yesterday morning was repaired today.  It was discovered that the leak originated at the ductile iron service "T".  After the service "T" was fully exposed and the irrigation lines were valved down, the T was removed.  Knock-on fittings were used in order to connect the new PVC service "T" to the existing pipes.  After some adjustments are made to the irrigation head, the line will be back up and running as  normal.
