Our recent work for the Indio Water Authority includes over 60 irrigation audits of residential and commercial properties. The purpose of the audits is to provide an assessment of the customers’ irrigation systems and recommendations for reducing landscape water use. Information on IWA rebates for turf conversion and irrigation upgrades are included.
We worked with the newly formed agency in 2008 to develop guidelines for water efficient landscaping, developed a Cash for Grass pilot program for residential and commercial customers, and assisted in its implementation. We have provided follow-on services that include residential irrigation audits and creating reports that aim to show customers how they can reduce their landscape water use and realize savings.
