The smart irrigation pioneer’s podcast aims to demystify water conservation issues and educate listeners on how to tackle them
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA., August 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Amid the “mega drought” affecting the western United States and in addition, a newly launched podcast from smart irrigation innovator Calsense brings clarity to the challenges and proposed solutions associated with the responsible use of our water resources.
Each episode of the H2OMICS podcast features an interview with an expert in the fields of irrigation and water conservation or sustainability, and highlights important issues that might otherwise not be on listeners’ radars.
“Conserving water is absolutely critical to the health of the planet,” said the podcast host Carolina Alban Stoughton says. “But sometimes it seems like we don’t think about how we use water until summer water restrictions are put in place.
“H2OMICS is a forum for discussion of the water issues that affect us all on a daily basis. So we’re looking at technologies like smart irrigation, which uses weather and soil sensors to ensure landscapes aren’t over- or under-watered. We talk about the possibilities Individuals, public institutions and companies can use their water more efficiently. We look for radical solutions to water supply problems, including drinking water reuse – cleaning and reusing our drinking water. And we are even exploring how these initiatives can be funded.”
The latest episode of H2OMICS features a conversation with Noel HarrymanHead of Website Maintenance Jefferson County public schools in Colorado.
“When children go back to school, there is a lot of preparation and maintenance that needs to be done to keep sports fields in optimal and safe condition for young athletes,” says Alban-Stoughton. “A large part of this involves proper irrigation for the activity level of specific fields. They can be incredibly busy as hundreds or thousands of students use them every day. We spoke about the challenges Noel and his team face in keeping these fields playable, how they are using technology to do this, and how they are preparing for a future where the climate crisis will have increasing impacts on landscape management .”
