First Office in California

It seemed unneighborly not to have a formal presence in California, considering the amount of work we are doing here.  A fleet of SWIIM trucks and trailers is no place to kick your feet up late in the day.  Plus, the BBQ get-togethers are pretty nice - we're looking to host our own, real soon.

So we took up in a converted house in El Centro as our footprint continues to grow (car was not included).

We are on Olive Avenue with renovations in progress...   Call our office and set up an appointment to meet with our team (has to be early or late - we are in the field a good bit lately).  Next stop for an office will likely be in the Central Valley - location to be determined... stay tuned!

SWIIM Signs Popping Up

These signs keep popping up all over. 

Our team is busy in the shop configuring equipment.

We have SWIIM interest in three new regions of California and one new region in both Colorado and Arizona.  Our growth has exploded in California alone, which has led to the beginning of our next expansion plan.  More to come on this in future updates.

SWIIM Team Stays Busy Throughout Summer

The dog-days of summer are upon us The SWIIM Team is working overtime as our deployment schedule continues to heat up.  We have new clients in Imperial Valley and are officially deploying in the Central Valley.  The SWIIM Team has been busy expanding our reach in California and continuing to build momentum for new deployments in both Colorado and Arizona. 

Necessity is the mother of invention, and we have developed serveral methods to acquire reliable data around the crop-water budget, including a myriad of headgate, channel and piple turn-out methods.  Another form of flow sensing - with our mud-layered SWIIM truck in the background:

 

We have expanded our reach in the Central Valley with new sites for later this year and are in the process of deployment preparations around a brand-new region in California.  More to come...

SWIIM Deployments Continue

We love agriculture and water - there are few jobs that are more satisfying than helping those that help us eat.  We continue our deployment schedule in California. Still working in Imperial and now in the Central Valley. We have interest from Arizona and Colorado, also. So many channels, so little time.

Measuring the crop-water budget takes precision - and experience. Our team knows ag, and water.  "Ag-Tech" is only half tech - the other half (ag) is just as, if not more important.

Checking other forms of sensors...

Not many jobs offer this sort of view, taken from one of our deployment sites in Southern California -

We can't be thankful enough for our growers that see the value that SWIIM brings to their operations.  Thank you!

SWIIM team is moving north

The SWIIM team is out and about at events throughout the region sharing the story of how the toolset can benefit producers and water managers alike.

Our trucks are appearing at new sites as deployments continue...

Working on a SWIIM-monitored headgate....

Central Valley of California, here we come!

DARCA 2012 - SWIIM Premiere
