Instrumentation Paul Carr
SWIIM® includes a comprehensive administration/management tool that verifies water use and related conservation against a specified baseline, along with the resulting newly-projected crop production output. SWIIM is “hardware agnostic” and compatible with many commercially available equipment, including flow meters, gate meters, tail water sensors, climatic sensors, groundwater instrumentation and supporting infrastructure such as weirs, flumes, stilling wells, and similar technologies. This equipment is connected near real-time via telemetry to SWIIM® to provide near-real-time water usage and consumption reports, along with “alarms” if a specific field is going outside the projected/approved water usage, alongside other pre-determined irregularities.
An easy-to-use interface designed for farmers, ranchers and other water right owners to optimize their farm income and water use. Co-developed under a multi-year research and development contract with the US Department of Agriculture, the system utilizes region-specific data, which is compared against real-life activities in the field.
An interface designed for water managers including ditch companies, irrigation districts, large-scale corporate growers and farming co-ops. The package is designed to allow for aggregation of a series of planned fields water budgets. This includes monitoring and reporting of actual applied and consumed water use within a region.
