Alice Water Smart Parks and Ovals

Regular irrigation is necessary to maintain our parks and ovals to a standard that is suitable for all sporting and leisure uses. Through Alice Water Smart, in partnership with the Alice Springs Town Council, 72 of Alice Springs' parks and ovals will now make use of a sophisticated irrigation control system to save water.

The centrally controlled irrigation system measures weather elements such as temperature, humidity and rainfall and adjusts water flows and run times for each site to adjust the water required.

In one average week in summer the system could potentially save up to 21 million litres or over 8 Olympic sized swimming pools.

It is estimated that the project will save 80 million litres of water (32 Alice Aquatic Centres) each year.

This equipment also allows early identification of leaks for immediate repair.
