CLIENT OBJECTIVES

For this project, the client was interested in reducing water consumption, improving their carbon footprint, and achieving overall cost savings.

VALUE DELIVERED

We installed and implemented a water conservation program that exceeded the client’s operational, financial, and environmental objectives. This included results such as:

  • 20% water consumption savings achieved*
  • 5,000,000 gallons of water saved*
  • 23% cost savings achieved on water bills*
  • ROI achieved in 12-24 months*

SOLUTIONS

We designed and implemented a program for retrofitting the existing irrigation systems at nearly 200 locations. The program included:

  • Spray nozzles with uniform, ultra-efficient, multi-stream rotating technology
  • Controllers that adjust the system to site level weather conditions
  • Sensors that alert the client to potential problems/repairs in real-time
  • Rebate administration, where applicable

The retrofitted system now applies water uniformly, even under windy circumstances, and makes water adjustments to match current weather conditions. The unique system also detects anomalies, such as broken heads or stuck valves, and provides alerts so we can quickly fix the issue. This solution eliminates run-off and minimizes the amount of water sprayed outside of the target area. The overall result of this project was 20% water savings, exceeding the client’s initial objectives.
