Agriculture Water Use Surveys
February 14, 2012

WaterWise now offers Agriculture Water Use Surveys for customers with orchards on their properties. Since California is such an ideal place for a wide variety of crops, many cities throughout the state have residential properties which were converted from orchards or agricultural land. Many residents now have built a home with landscaping as well as a viable orchard with crops such as avocados and citrus. Many of these customers rely on companies which maintain their fields while others manage their crops themselves. With increasing water use and higher water rates, many orchardists have found themselves with questions like "How much water does my crop actually need?" or "Am I using my water efficiently?" Some even ask " How well managed is my irrigation system?" Unfortunately for many customers, crops do not need as much water as they receive, and their irrigation systems are being poorly managed.

WaterWise can now help you save water by conducting a full-scale agricultural water use analysis. A surveyor will visit your site and evaluate the irrigation system performance. They will then document problems or issues that they discover with your irrigation system. Part of our survey is also to assess soil classifications, crop type (Avocados, Citrus, etc.), orchard density, age of crops, and local weather and climate information. Finally, we provide you with a full report detailing all findings, as well as crop and irrigation system care that can help lead you to water savings and a healthy crop.
Some issues WaterWise can assist you with are:

  • Spikes in water usage
  • Determining if you have a leak
  • Increasing irrigation efficiency
  • Retrofitting irrigation systems
  • Orchard maintenance and care information

If you have any questions about our agricultural surveys, please contact the following individual:
