The 45th anniversary of Earth Day brought even more awareness to the issues associated with water scarcity. People around the globe are becoming increasingly sensitive and focused on the unnecessary waste of the earth’s precious resources. Mandatory water restrictions are being implemented by leaders, agencies, and municipalities across the United States.
What many don’t know is that advanced technology solutions can help businesses deal with these restrictions and the need to conserve water. One such solution, ETwater, is a cloud-based platform that takes environmental data from multiple sources and provides intelligent, automated water irrigation plans and schedules. This approach provides real-time monitoring and management capability from any mobile or smart device.
“The planet’s sustainability is all our responsibility,” says Pat McIntyre, Chairman and CEO of ETwater. “The combination of our Internet based technology platform, and smart controller devices, enables us to help businesses and consumers to conserve water while preserving a healthy landscape.”
The goal at ETwater is to help people understand their landscapes and save water. Consequently, the company has been investing in and developing a complete, cloud-based smart irrigation system which reduces water consumption by up to 50% versus conventional irrigation methods.
