Conserve water while maintaining healthy urban greenspaces
Drought and increasing water scarcity are quickly felt in metropolitan areas. Efforts have been taken to improve water conservation.
Over-irrigation and waste still occur without precision irrigation techniques.
Data collected with Sensoterra soil moisture sensors are integrated into the current irrigation management system, resulting in
- A reduction of tree/plant illness or mortality, and replacement costs
- Reduction of water consumption for irrigation of between 10-30%
- Reduction of manual irrigation labor costs
- Fewer water truck irrigation rounds
Positive impact on society, environment, and local communities
- City or landscapers install sensors in irrigated parks, medians, and public sports fields
- The initial investment ROI is attained within 10 months of installation
- Healthy urban green-spaces and a significant reduction in wasted water
By integrating the Sensoterra soil moisture readings with other smart devices, such as smart-irrigation valves and weather station data, irrigation of public spaces can be done only when needed. This increased effectivity, reduces over-irrigation and while providing insights into water consumption and conservation.
