Colorado River Watershed Monitors – Western US Drought Conditions – El Niño & La Niña Conditions
More than 15 years of drought in Arizona Colorado River Water shed reminds us all that water management is important. 50-70% of urban water is used to water landscaping.
If your landscape and irrigation system is more than 20 years old, chances are they are having more and more problems as they continue to age. Higher water bills are only the tip of the iceberg for costs related to aging landscapes and irrigation systems. Water costs are typically only a small percentage of total costs (10-20%) of aging landscapes and irrigation systems that are hard to manage and maintain; leading to higher “hidden costs”.
