District Saves Water With Weather-Based Irrigation

A recent grant will pay for weather-based irrigation controllers at 27 schools, conserving water and saving the Long Beach Unified School District more than $20,000 annually in water bills. The web-based system automatically schedules irrigation at each school based on highly localized weather data and enables remote monitoring and adjustments from any web-connected PC, if necessary. The $75,000 grant from the Long Beach Water Department and the Metropolitan Water District paid for the controllers, which should be installed by September.
