Dear Palm Beacher:

Landscapes in the Town of Palm Beach consume 80% of the potable water we purchase from West Palm Beach - over 2 billion gallons a year at a cost of more than $11 million. We overwater by 30%-to-300% and the excess water damages plants, hard-scapes and especially our wallets.
Smart Irrigation Technology (SIRT) has been indisputably proven to slash water consumption by 25%-60% in a variety of communities throughout the U.S. Indeed, this technology has never failed to meet expectations. Savings of 40%-60% have accrued from early adopters in Palm Beach. We have saved over $1,000 in less than a year -an annual payback rate of well over 150%!
For many homes and condo associations, SIRT is plug-compatible with previously installed timer-controllers and can be easily installed in a few hours. It's really a no-brainer.
Please visit our Civic Association Water webpage to learn more about this technology and install it on your property.
Not only will it save you money, if enough Palm Beach single-family-homes and condo owners install it, we will avoid the need to build a $150 million - $220 million water treatment plant.
