Water User Information Delivery Tool
The software produces water use reports for individual property locations that interprets landscape water consumption in ways that help water users understand and monitor their own use (Figure 3). The reports contain the volume of landscape water used, an estimate of landscape water need, and an LIR for a reporting period. The reports also provide a monitor that graphs residents’ water use for current and previous periods and projects a landscape water need for future months based on historical, localized average evapotranspiration. Weather data that compare the current period to the historical average for that period is provided as well. These water use reports can be distributed by utilities to water users.
