I participated in the Smart Irrigation Program in coordination with the Safe Water Commission and the Stillwater Board of Water Commissioners. I had received a postcard in the mail and my first thought was the deal seemed almost too good to be true but I am happy to say that it's truly legit and is an awesome deal! I had really enjoyed working with Rick Ellis from Safe Water Commission who took care of the online program setup and Nick from Superior Landscaping and Irrigation who did the irrigation assessment and also installed the Hunter controller. Both Rick and Nick were super great guys to work with and they took care of everything for me. Our family is thrilled about being a better steward of our irrigation water use and with the ease and effectiveness of the WiFi enabled Hunter controller and optional rain sensor we also had installed, the anticipated water (and cost) savings will be significant. Thank you again, Rick and Nick for making this such a great experience. I am more than happy to strongly recommend them so that others are able to take advantage of this awesome program as well!

Stillwater Board of Water Commissioners Smart Irrigation Program

In 2020, the Stillwater Board of Water Commissioners, with the assistance of the Brown's Creek Water District, partnered with Safe Water Commission who, with Hunter Industries, is initiating a residential program providing 100 smart irrigation controllers, professional installation, and an irrigation system audit. This service, valued at over $500 dollars, cost only $30 to each of the first 100 participants. By participating in this program,  participants saved money on your future water bills to help conserve our precious drinking water.

They met the following qualifications to be eligible to participate in the program.

  • Live within the city limits of Stillwater
  • Have a residence with a functioning irrigation system with no more than 6-zones
  • Have an irrigation controller which is installed inside (garage or basement preferably)
  • Have a smart phone
  • Have a 2.4 GHz band, password-enabled Wi-Fi with good or excellent connectivity
  • Have an irrigation system installed prior to January 1, 2019

The smart irrigation controllers were distributed on a first-come/first-served basis to eligible applicants. Installation was in the Spring/Summer after the ground thawed.  The program ended up saving approximately 5 million gallons of water in just the first year!
