May 2, 2017 | News

Steve Hohl  joins the exclusive group of Irrigation Professionals recognized by the Society for their leadership, professionalism and commitment to independent irrigation development, design, and management principles. The induction ceremony was in conjunction with the 2017 ASIC Awards Banquet, April 25, in Seattle, Washington.

Like several others in our industry, Steve was introduced to the industry by circumstance. His first introduction was as a temporary summer hire for a landscape architectural firm while working on his engineering degree. He was soon taken with the idea of being part of the green industry. More specifically, Steve knew he wanted to focus his career on appropriate and responsible water use for the landscape. Steve enrolled as one of the first students in the Irrigation Science Program at Cal Poly, Pomona. Upon graduation, he began his career in irrigation and has since stayed focused on his goal of having a positive impact on his chosen industry.

Steve has influenced the industry in substantial and significant ways. He has had an exemplary career working on major projects, primarily in Southern California. Projects have included Community Development Master Planning; Water Management/Resource Development as well as Commercial/Industrial/Recreational Complexes.

Steve is frequently the public voice of responsible irrigation practices, accepting speaking engagements with various interest groups. He has also been a strong and vocal industry advocate and advisor for responsible and workable solutions to existing and proposed landscape water ordinances.

Steve has been an effective leader in his many roles with ASIC National and the SoCal Chapter including serving as ASIC President 2013-2014. He currently serves on the ASIC Executive Committee. He is known as a hard-working and always reliable volunteer who willingly accepts roles on countless committees.

ASIC Fellowship is a high honor that is bestowed on only a few of the most deserving candidates. Fellowship considerations include long-standing service to ASIC; professional and personal conduct that brings credit to the Society; and significant contributions to the industry through organization membership, education, and mentoring.
