Colorado Parks & Rec saves $10,450 in water costs at 1 park in 3 months

[This case study contributed by HydroPoint, provider of WeatherTRAK smart irrigation solutions.]
Challenge Park in Douglas County, CO sees thousands of visitors each day during warm weather months. Since children play recreational sports on its fields, landscape conditions must be just right. Falling on dry, hard-packed turf is dangerous as is the other extreme, standing pools of water.

Meanwhile, faced with monthly water bills as high as $18,000, the park needed to cut water costs. The challenge was achieving conservation objectives while maintaining a safe, playable field.

Adding to this struggle was the local water district’s mandate that landscapes could only be watered every three days. Since the park sees so much traffic during the day, they watered at night. But park officials quickly realized that watering 12½ acres of turf every third day within a tight water window was not realistic, nor was it good for plant health.

“At the time, we thought our only solution was to convert the entire park to synthetic turf. Then we heard about WeatherTRAK,” said Douglas County Parks Supervisor Chuck Klafka.
