Benefits of hiring a Certified Water Manager
CLCA Certified Water Managers have proven they can save water. There are two levels of CLCA Certified Water Managers, Expert and Basic.
Expert-Level: A CLCA Expert Water Manager must pass the written test and manage five properties for one year and continue to manage five properties at or below the water budget established by the CLCA Water Management Performance Program.
Basic-Level: A CLCA Water Manager must pass the written test and manage at least one property for one year and continue to manage a property at or below the landscape water budget established by the CLCA.
Your CLCA Water Manager Can Help
- Improve your landscape: Overwatering leads to weeds, pests, and plant disease.
- Preserve your hardscape: Fences, concrete, asphalt, etc. erode faster when subjected to over-spray and runoff.
- Save you money: Water rates just keep going up. Saving water saves money!
