WaterSense Draft Specification Released for Weather-based Irrigation Controllers

The revised specification is open for comment until March 21.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released the WaterSense Revised Draft Specification for Weather-Based Irrigation Controllers. The revised draft addresses stakeholder comments on the initial draft released in November 2009.

With more than 13.5 million irrigation systems currently installed in the United States, replacing existing standard clock timer controllers with WaterSense labeled weather-based irrigation controllers could offer significant water savings for homeowners and organizations using irrigation systems. Weather-based controllers create or modify irrigation schedules based on the landscape needs and real-time weather data.

Comments on the revised draft specification are due March 21. To learn more and submit comments, visit epa.gov/watersense/partners/controltech.html.
