Pride and prejudice and … water

without comments

If it’s Monday, chances are we could all use a dose of water conservation and Jane Austen.

Well, you’re in luck, thanks to Kelly Duke, vice president of pre-construction services at ValleyCrest, who just spent his honeymoon in Northern England.

As a proper member of the landed gentry, Mr. Darcy did not need to worry about irrigation.  Even if the Lake District did not receive its average of over 80 inches of rain per annum, he could still rely on an abundant staff to manage his estate’s landscaping.

Now back at home in my Southern California digs, I am reminded that water is a fickle, if not a fleeting resource, and that I need to play an active role in its conservation.

Check out Kelly’s digest of smart water technology, and how it can be integrated into irrigation systems, here.
