How can we save water in public areas?

Public parks, gardens, sports arenas, and landscaped medians are the lifeblood of our cities. They provide green spaces for recreation, improve air quality, and contribute to our overall well-being. But maintaining these vibrant spaces can be a challenge, especially when it comes to water usage.

The Problem: Balancing Beauty with Resource Management

Keeping public areas lush and inviting requires consistent irrigation. However, traditional irrigation methods can be wasteful, leading to:

  • High water bills: Unchecked water usage can strain municipal budgets.
  • Water scarcity concerns: Many regions face water shortages, making conservation crucial.
  • Inefficient use of resources: Overwatering not only wastes water but can also damage plants.

The Solution: Smart Irrigation with Motorola IRRInet


The Motorola IRRInet system enables accurate irrigation, rapid detection of water leakages, water budget control and advanced scheduled reporting. Designed to manage thousands of valves, water meters, sensors and head controls, the system can also receive data from third-party sources such as PLC and weather stations and automatically adjust water quantities according to the daily ET.

It’s well documented that a cities’ livability is strongly linked to the number and quality of green spaces made available to it’s inhabitants. On the other hand, provision and management of these spaces can be costly without the correct tools and management systems.

It must be robust. It must be reliable. And it must provide irrigation and water supply control over over an unlimited number of field valves, water meters, water pumps, fertilisers, sensors and more.
