Recognizing the campus's impressive conservation efforts on the eve of Earth Day, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) today presented Cal State L.A. a $51,679 water-savings performance-incentive calculated at $3.50 per thousand gallons saved. Since the installation of the Water2Save's wireless water-management service in September 2008, Cal State L.A. has also saved more than $100,000 in water-bill reductions.
"Not only are we saving water, but the Water2Save system does not require my employees to learn a new system which saves my staff a lot of time. They also do not have to change the watering schedules when the weather changes or shut the controllers off before it rains." -John Ferris, Director of Facilities Services, CSULACSULA is an excellent example of Water2Save's proven effectiveness in real-world conditions, but is not by any means the only property that has achieved such extraordinary results. Water2Save customers with large properties located in the Los Angeles area saved an average of over 16 million gallons of water in 2009 alone.
(By saving water, Water2Save customers also achieve significant embedded energy savings by alleviating the need to pump large amounts of water into the L.A. basin from hundreds of miles away.)
Water2Save is in the forefront of the development of remote wireless management and efficient operation of landscape watering. The Water2Save service, with patented Look-Ahead ET(TM) weather data monitoring, consistently delivers large water and dollar savings to its customers.

Landscapers Re-evaluate Offering Water2Save to Their Customers. Many landscapers have recognized that customers which purchased Smart Timers may not be realizing irrigation water savings. Manufacturers of Smart Timers do not monitor or guarantee water bill savings. Now is the time to consider offering customers a solution which delivers routine savings reports. Contact Water2Save to find out more about how to improve retention of landscape contracts.
