Are you trying to save money on irrigation water? Are you working on a LEED certified property? With continuing droughts and ongoing increases in cost, water conservation has become one of the hottest topics in Maui landscapes. Doug will cover his experience with Rain Bird and California’s strict water use regulations. He will be discussing the use of Smart Controllers to calculate ‘ET’ (evapo-transpiration) to regulate water use. He will be showing how pressure regulation, proper nozzle selection and drip irrigation can be adapted into your existing landscapes. Doug will also address the incorporation of these methods on LEED certified projects. These water saving methods can be adapted for use on golf courses, plant nurseries, farms, resorts and private homes.

Doug Carmichael is the Rain Bird Distributor Manager for the Southern California Area, one of the largest irrigation markets in the world. The California market continues to legislate and regulate water usage in an effort to increase water conservation awareness. Dough received his BS from Springfield College, Springfield, MA and his MBA from Pepperdine University.

There will be a raffle at the end of the meeting.
Each attendee will receive one free ticket.
Additional tickets can be purchased for $1 each.
