Studies and analyses on rainfall data, soils, plant evapotranspiration, climate change, and economics all rely on Computer Models. They are created to understand complex systems, not predict their outcomes. Irrigation Consulting provides its clients comprehensive reports using our own proprietary models to understand how their landscape and water resources consumption will respond to a variety of design scenarios. From many scenarios, an optimum can be found based on the clients design criteria and project goals.
The most common of computer modeling reports performed by Irrigation Consulting is Alternative Water Harvesting. Alternative Water, in this case, is basically any water other than domestic potable water: roof runoff, site stormwater, greywater, groundwater, and mechanical condensate, to name a few. Climate modeling for irrigation provides our clients the full range (not just the average) of possible outcomes. We size tanks based on sophisticated irrigation “smart” controls that distribute water based on real-time climate conditions each day, and not an automatic average or peak condition. The savings on water consumed and harvesting tank sizes are substantial.
The elegance of Irrigation Consulting’s computer modeling is that it is not one-single program locked into doing one routine analysis for all jobs. Irrigation Consulting is not bound by a single-output program:
