Why are certified landscape irrigation auditors (CLIA) important?

Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditors are equipped with the knowledge and tools to help an irrigation system run as optimally as possible, resulting in an overall reduction in water usage and encouraging plant growth in positive ways.


What is a certified landscape irrigation auditor?

Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditors (CLIA) are certified by the Irrigation Association.

The main role of a Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditor (CLIA) is to perform an in-depth analysis of your irrigation system, identify any potential issues or improvements that can be made to the system, and then ultimately provide suggestions to program the irrigation to provide the optimal amount of water to plant life.

Some of the services a CLIA will perform include but are not limited to:

  • Collecting site-specific data
  • Providing maintenance recommendations and performing minor repairs.
  • Taking field measurements and making observations.
  • Determining irrigation uniformity and efficiency.
  • Developing a basic irrigation schedule.
  • Collaborating with water managers or property owners to optimize irrigation water use.

Water managed sites and Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditors

The City of Calgary is in the process of approving their Water Managed Sites Program. This program will allow properties with an in-ground irrigation system to become certified by the City of Calgary for water efficiency.

These irrigation systems must use climatic or historical weather data to set water schedules in addition to other requirements.

Although the program is still being approved, one thing that is for certain is that Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditors will play a key role in the application and approval process to become a Water Managed Site. Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditors will also be required in order to maintain your Water Managed Site status once approved.

More information on the Water Managed Site program is available on the official City of Calgary website at https://www.calgary.ca/water/programs/water-managed-sites.html.
