About Us

Decades of Excellence

It’s the Aqueduct way.

When William Holt (pictured, first from right) founded Aqueduct Irrigation in 1988, he believed focusing on flawless workmanship, water-saving technologies and methods, high quality products, and great customer service was a recipe for success. The formula worked and along the way Holt opened a second company, Southern Light, to serve his irrigation customers’ architectural and landscape lighting needs. Decades later, both companies are still family-owned and firmly established as trusted, industry-leading service providers.
