The WATERIGHT site was developed by the Center for Irrigation Technology at California State University, Fresno with significant support from the US Bureau of Reclamation. WATERIGHT is designed to be a multi-function, educational resource for irrigation water management. The site is designed for three audiences: homeowners, commercial turf growers, and agriculture.
An important resource of the site is the irrigation scheduling programming that helps users develop site-specific, seasonal irrigation schedules. WATERIGHT is connected to the California Irrigation Management Information System (CIMIS) and the AgriMet system in the Northwest states of Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. These weather stations provide the scheduling routines with reference evapotranspiration data for specific areas. Separate sections are available for scheduling home, commercial turf, and production agriculture.
