Dallas Irrigation Company Engages Texas Leaders in Water Conservation
Morris, a well-known figure when it comes to politics and water, testified before Congress and worked tirelessly on the passage of the Sen. Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act of 2005. More recently Morris worked with a coalition to achieve passage of the Water for the World Act, signed into law by President Obama in 2014. Garland, Texas-based Weathermatic is a global forerunner in smart irrigation technology and services, working with many U.S. Fortune 500 companies to set and achieve their water sustainability goals. Since joining the Board of Weathermatic, Morris has focused his political acumen on advocating for more efficient water management in his home state.
Morris and Mason are working with Texas politicians and real estate leaders to encourage large-scale adoption of smart irrigation technology throughout the state, in order to reduce water waste. In Texas, up to 70% of residential and commercial water use goes to landscape irrigation and, according to the EPA, as much as 50% of that water is wasted due to inefficient watering systems and practices. “The water savings from a large-scale adoption of certain smart irrigation systems and practices would be sufficient to replenish the equivalent of one Lake Travis every six months, relieving Texas’ desperate need for new reservoirs” Morris stated.
