False alarm on the Edisto
April 20, 2014
The South Fork of the Edisto River recently was included on a list of the nation s 10 most endangered waterways by American Rivers, a national environmental group. And it might actually have belonged on that list had not a dispute over the withdrawal of water from the river been satisfactorily resolved earlier this year. As it is, the listing is misleading as to the actual protections enjoyed on the Edisto and to the efforts that brought about those safeguards. The agreement reached with Walther Farms includes reducing by 50 percent the projected volume of water to be taken from the Edisto for farm irrigation, limiting the further harvesting of hardwoods along the river, putting an agricultural easement on the land, and paying for the installation and operation of a continual flow monitor in the river. Walther Farms agreed to use groundwater to irrigate during periods of low flow. It also has provided substantial setbacks along the river.

How water can put $20,000 or more back into your budget; Breakthrough Monitors Water In Real Time
March 01, 2014
  Every year in America, undetected water leaks cost property owners millions of gallons of lost water and millions more in related costs.           With water rates rising in nearly every city (Atlanta is now up to almost $30 per thousand gallons), underground leaks, irrigation leaks and catastrophic pipe bursts are draining budgets all across the country.         Droughts and water restrictions also emphasize the need for conservation.       A new technology from WaterSipal now empowers companies such as Gables, Cortland, Greystar and Johns, Lang, LaSalle to manage their water conservation efforts through real time viewing of usage.           For the first time, immediate detection of water spikes related to leaks can be communicated to a manager for quick action that can save owners thousands of dollars.       WaterSignal: A Breakthrough       Some maintenance supervisors routinely read water meters. But if a leak were to occur after the read, after hours or over a weekend, no one would know of the excessive usage spike until the next read, by which time thousands of gallons could be lost.             [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]           Water utilities typically read meters monthly. A property manager may not realize there is an unseen leak until a large water bill is received 3060 days later.             WaterSignal's breakthrough technology features a self-contained, non-intrusive device that listens to the pulse of a water meter in real time.       Through the process, data is collected and sent wirelessly to a secure website portal where managers and owners can view a property's water consumption for the entire month, day, or even down to the hour.
