Since February 2014, the City’s Parks Division has cut back 20% of water use for overall parks, when compared to the same month the previous year.
For more than 10 years, the Parks Division has utilized a computerized irrigation system in 14 of our major parks that allows programmed irrigation times, and more importantly, close monitoring of watering in City parks based on strict water reductions.
The system acts as a “computer-in-the-field,” allowing the ability to control remote sites from one Central Controller
The controllers allow Parks staff to input reductions based on each day’s watering cycle
Outdoor watering uses between 40-60% of residential water, significant water savings can be captured by improving irrigation systems or by reducing water-needy landscaping. For more information visit http://www.cityofventura.net/waterwise
