Each site in our program gets a percentile score ranging from 1 to 100 based on how closely actual water use tracks to its Budget Range over the last 12 months relative to all other sites in the program. If a site’s water use stays within the Budget Range in each month, its score is 100. Water use over the Budget Range lowers the score. Water use under the Budget Range also lowers the score but only by a third as much. This scoring encourages sites to consistently follow the seasonal irrigation pattern. While some customers may choose to underwater, our goal is to reduce overwatering without compromising landscape health and appearance.

A score of 75 means that a site has performed better than 75% of its peer sites. A score of 50 means half of its peers are doing better and half are doing worse. A score of 25 means a site is doing better than only 25% of its peers. Efforts to increase irrigation efficiency can improve a site’s percentile rather quickly, as we continually update scores based on the last 12 months of data.

The table above ranks organizations (with 2 or more sites) based on average site score (best at top). The table is updated monthly.
