WaterSmart Irrigation Programs
WaterSmart On-Site Surveys
Free on-site surveys are available to commercial customers with large landscapes to help them more efficiently manage their irrigation water use. A typical irrigation survey includes:
- Water use evaluation, both past and present
- Irrigation equipment inspection and tests (i.e., sprinklers, controllers, drip lines)
- Mapping of irrigation zones and equipment
- Training in water efficient irrigation, including a watering schedule
- Determination of eligibility for an Irrigation Upgrade Program
- Creation of a water budget report (irrigation-only meters)
- Water savings recommendations
