SNWA Embarks on a Study For New Water Efficient Device
The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) teamed up with a national irrigation manufacturer to debut the Watering Group Assistant. This prototype is designed to omit the hassles of re-setting watering clocks to comply with mandated acceptable seasonal watering periods. Throughout the year the device will automatically adjust irrigation clocks to the correct watering schedule. This is achieved by sending a signal that interrupts connected valves operating during forbidden watering times. The study will involve six different prototypes of the Watering Group Assistant. Six hundred valley participants will gauge the ease of installation, use of device and overall water savings.
