Mt. Diablo Unified School District Seeks Irrigation Company for Water Conservation


As many school districts in California struggle with finances, districts like MDUSD are taking initiative with resource conservation as a means to aid their budget. Taking another step today with centralized irrigation.

Concord, CA, January 09, 2011 --(PR.com)-- As the Mt. Diablo Unified School District, (MDUSD) is in a budget crisis along with many other California districts, they are turning to resource conservation as a dollar saving tactic. Right now this is a rare opportunity that doing something for the environment coincides with a direct monetary benefit.

Already under contract at MDUSD is the largest K-12 solar power installation in the United States. This system is expected to save the district almost $200,000,000 over 30 years.

The MDUSD is now planning to install a centralized irrigation system that can be proactive with local weather stations in order to reduce water use as well as installing measures to shut down and report lines that have leaks. The overall savings to a district of their size is potentially in the tens of thousands of dollars. The environmental benefit is equally large, conserving hundreds of thousands of gallons of municipal water.

The MDUSD is planning to install this system on all of the sites with municipal water supplies, making 35 of the 56 schools candidates for the new system. Schools that were not chosen to participate do not have significant irrigation needs. There is a website dedicated to the potential bidders with details regarding the system and expectations. The direct website address is http://169.199.90.240, once there follow the links for centralized irrigation. This irrigation bid was posted on 1-7-2011.
