- Pays for itself
- Conserves water and energy
- Promotes healthy landscapes
- Will reduce the need for a new estimated $160 million dedicated water plant for the Town of Palm Beach – thus lowering the need for a major tax assessment for this capital expense
If property owners implement smart irrigation, the Town can lessen the need for a new dedicated water plant by conserving over 40% of what is used for irrigation. Smart irrigation, using Smart Controllers, is a major part of the answer. If a cut of 40% is achieved, town-wide consumption drops to 3.6 million gallons per day. 60% conservation and total consumption drops to 2.4 million gallons a day. That saves over a Billion gallons a year in the Town of Palm Beach.
The Civic Association in the Town of Palm Beach has announced a public awareness and education campaign including Smart Irrigation Workshops, email blasts, direct mail, civic group presentations around town, and a property owner telephone call program to implement smart controllers and irrigation in the Town.
At the workshops, representatives from the Town of Palm Beach Public Works Department and smart controller vendors will present their latest technology to help cut water use significantly town-wide. The Town will also ask property owners to register for the Smart Irrigation Pilot Study to measure the results of smart controller use.
