Aquarion Water Company has joined with local officials to promote water conservation and reduce water use by restricting outdoor and landscape watering to a maximum of twice weekly, as follows:
- Twice-weekly restrictions will apply to both in-ground systems and above-ground sprinklers. Drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand-held watering will continue to be allowed.
- Aquarion Water Company customers can file for a variance to allow for additional watering time if the property is larger than two (2) acres.
- ELM’s installation of smart water conservation technology will allow for watering to occur outside of the normal water restrictions due to their ability to conserve large volumes of water.
Ways to save
- Make water conservation a strategic priority.
- Reduce watering needs by strategic plant practices (mulching, soil amendments and hydrogels, and proactively managing moisture-stress symptoms).
- Convert underutilized or underperforming turf areas to perennial meadows or alternative use.
- Use state of the art water technologies to better manage, use and conserve irrigation water.
ELM’s Premier Partnership with Weathermatic®, a global leader in smart water technology, is a new addition to our water conservation tool kit. The technology uses high-efficiency components designed to improve irrigation water use on commercial properties through sensor-based analysis and intelligent reporting.
This technology is now available to all of our clients as part of a green tech upgrade program.
ELM recommends the following to ensure that landscapes remain healthy and high-performing:
- Include irrigation data as an essential financial metric in your building operation’s dashboard system.
- Install smart water technology to manage water distribution, gauge irrigation requirements and save on water costs.
- Use proper irrigation methods to improve system efficiencies, such as pressure-regulating devices, which apply water directly to plants, and high-efficiency nozzles or other devices such as drip system alternatives as conservation measures.
Act now. Implement dramatic water savings and immediate compliance with water restrictions to avoid costly fines:
