In this session, attendees will learn what central control is relative to responsible irrigation management and how it can be used to address inefficiencies in managing landscape water use. We will also address flow monitoring, which can be managed by central control.
We’ll look at the use of weather-based programming and remote monitoring in a central control and water budget forecasting context and demonstrate how these elements can be utilized to save on water, labor and overall operational costs. In the face of ongoing drought, rising labor costs and staffing issues, creating irrigation system efficiencies is crucial. This session provides tips and tools to implement those operational efficiencies, using less water and more efficient labor to save money.
1. Explain the concept of central control in irrigation management and how it can be used to address inefficiencies in managing landscape water use.
2. Demonstrate how flow monitoring can be managed by central control.
3. Show how central control concepts can be implemented in their organization to save water, energy and labor.
