Irrigation Tips Webinar from the Alliance for Water Efficiency

The Alliance for Water Efficiency is offering a webinar titled Overspray = Overpay: What Your Customers Need to Know about Efficient Irrigation

My colleague Juan Garcia at WaterWise Consulting will be one of the presenters on this webinar. Juan’s a great teacher and really knows his landscape water efficiency. He’s joined by two other very knowledgeable irrigation pros, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from some of the best!

This IRRIGATION EFFICIENCY webinar takes place on March 13. This is intended for water supplier staff to use in educating their water customers on how to save water (and money) in the landscape. AWE members can attend for free. Others pay $50, which is just one good reason to join and support the Alliance.

The Pyramid of New Water Sources

Here’s an interesting new tool to use when it comes to thinking about or teaching about water supply and conservation.  It’s called The Pyramid of New Water Sources and comes from  Jerry Yudelson , a noted green building authority and author.  I just found this in a blog post from World Water Day at Jetson Green.

A tool for prioritizing water supply sources by cost & complexity.

The Pyramid of New Water Sources

The Pyramid shows a progression of “new water” sources, ranging from the simple and free/cheap alternatives at the bottom to more complex and expensive at the top (with desalination and new water sources at the top).  Everything below the top level is about efficiency and reuse.  It’s a great reminder that when it comes to finding new supplies of water, using what we’ve already got more efficiently is almost always the most practical and cost-effective approach.
