Smart Irrigation ControllersSmart, weather-based irrigation clocks automatically adjust your irrigation system’s run time based on historic weather data. This reduces the amount of water in the cooler months and increases the amount in the summer. Coachella Valley homeowners who do not manually adjust their irrigation controllers and switch to a self-adjusting system can expect to cut their water usage by an average of 30 percent.
CVWD will install and program smart irrigation controllers for eligible customers in participating cities.
Homeowners may be eligible to receive a free smart controller, including installation. HOAs and businesses may be eligible for smart controller rebates of up to half the cost of the controller.
