More than half of the region’s water is used for sustaining urban landscapes, and most property owners and managers can improve their outdoor water-use efficiency by following best management practices. To help implement those practices, irrigation management companies will inspect irrigation systems, make recommendations for increasing water-use efficiency, and prepare an irrigation schedule that matches the needs of each property. Irrigation management services are provided at a cost, but in many instances the cost of the investment is recovered through future water savings. In addition, financial incentives may be available to offset a portion of the costs associated with implementing any water-efficiency improvements.
