The awards include: AlwaysOn Going Green; Sustainable North Bay Business Award, and the 2008 Best of Petaluma Award.
"HydroPoint is delighted to have received multiple awards that recognize our team's dedication to Sustainability 2.0 that enable our customers to efficiently manage their corporate water footprint," said Chris Spain, chief strategy officer at HydroPoint. "Our award-winning WeatherTRAK technology conserves millions of gallons of water and subsequently reduces the energy and carbon-based fuels needed to support the movement and management of water."

HydroPoint's WeatherTRAK solution is credited with outdoor water savings of 59 percent and runoff reductions of 71 percent over typical irrigation systems.
