Best City Projects for Smart Irrigation

Water is our most precious resource, yet the EPA estimates that more than 60% of irrigation goes to waste. Rising demand coupled with less water availability has driven up rates and forced the consideration of water restrictions and rationing. Conventional practices and irrigation equipment perpetuate over-watering and the impact is felt in our wallets and in our landscapes. Using Smart Irrigation Solutions cities are able to limit unnecessary water consumption and still have beautiful parks and gardens for their citizens.
