Executive Summary

Metro Parks of Tacoma partnered with Calsense in 2006 and has proven the ability to save water, labor and maintenance costs. Park staff manage remotely irrigation schedules, ballfield lights, and programs that automatically lock and unlock public restrooms. Currently there are 40 controllers installed using GPRS cell modems as their communication option.

“Utilizing the Calsense weather-based irrigation, management system has played a huge part in reaching our water conservation goals. The dependability of the equipment and software, combined with excellent field technical support, has made our organization a very satisfied customer.”
