As the landscape industry begins to prioritize water conservation, irrigating with alternative, natural water sources is an important way to save our precious — and finite — supply of domestic water.
Alternative water sources can include captured rainwater, recycled water, greywater, and more — and irrigating with these not only saves domestic water but keeps landscapes just as healthy.
So, how can you manage and prioritize these alternative water sources seamlessly when designing or managing landscape irrigation?
Hear from experts about how they use multiple water sources and still maintain the ability to efficiently manage irrigation and produce thriving landscapes.
This webinar will cover:
- What secondary and alternative water sources are and how they conserve water
- What smart irrigation technology is currently available to help manage and prioritize multiple water sources
- Real success stories of using secondary water sources for landscape irrigation
