Smart watering - a Smart, Connected Brisbane initiative
Brisbane City Council is harnessing the power of water to help maintain the city's local sports clubs and parklands through smart watering. New digital irrigation monitoring systems are being progressively installed each year.
The system sees water monitoring devices digitally linked to weather stations and installed to monitor and report water flow, usage trends and environmental data, enabling clubs to better manage their water usage on sports fields and improve their playing surfaces.
Council also continues to ensure world-class water management practices following the investment from the Australian and Queensland governments, maintaining a 400,000 litre water tank under Roma Street Parkland and providing access to its stormwater system for South Bank Parklands' Rain Bank to help collect, store and treat water to service two iconic visitor destinations.
