MONITOR | ANALYZE | CONTROL AND MANAGE
The new efficient irrigation system comes at a time when climate change is on the verge of concerns of organizations and institutions. There are many studies and data in this regard that cannot be ignored, therefore it is important to ensure that measures and systems are used to manage resources in an intelligent and reasonable way. It is well known that Infraquinta's main responsibility is to maintain the quality of Quinta do Lago's infrastructures, while looking for and investing in sustainable solutions that allow constant innovation, guaranteeing the future of future generations. Therefore, measures have been taken to fit into the Municipal Climate Change Strategy.
More Sustainable Public Spaces
Currently, Infraquinta is responsible for 13 ha of irrigated green spaces. For irrigation purposes there are 3 different water sources: borehole, network and treated wastewater.
Adaptation to climate change has been an ongoing work – grasslands have been reduced and existing plants were replaced by indigenous species to improve the look and fit the management of public spaces in the climate change strategy. Nowadays technology is the basis of all innovations and with solutions to daily problems can be found. The need to make irrigation management more efficient and adaptable to weather conditions brought the IQ irrigation system.
With the IQ irrigation system there is no need to go to the irrigation point to make changes in the irrigation configuration. Team efforts and vehicle mobilization are spared, thus environmental impact is minimized. By installing flowmeters, the system automatically alerts for leaks or breakages, allowing for greater control and less waste!
In the near future, it is intended to connect the IQ irrigation system with the Infraquinta weather station, so that irrigation can be disabled whenever rainfall levels warrant it.
