Water Supply Concerns Escalate As Drought Emergencies Declared In 8 Idaho Counties

With Idaho in one of its driest periods in recent history, PPS has focused attention on the urgent need to conserve our states water resources.

As an Idaho-based manufacturer for more than 40 years, Precision Pumping Systems has watched the Idaho state landscape change dramatically. Our state’s population has grown to record numbers in recent decades, yet we are still relying on the same limited surface and ground water resources to sustain us, even though our demand for fresh water has more than doubled. These same resources are further challenged by continuing development, pollution, climate change, and inefficient use.

This has created a huge imbalance between our state’s water usage and nature’s ability to replenishment it. Currently, we’re facing record drought conditions as our lakes, rivers and reservoirs are at their lowest point in decades. Water restrictions and user allocation limits across Idaho are being mandated, irrigation canals are empty, and we are declaring drought emergencies in eight major Idaho counties.

All of us at Precision Pumping Systems value the long-term conservation of Idaho’s clean water resources. With statewide drought conditions surging, PPS has focused attention and development resources on water conservation through advanced monitoring and operation control technology using their new Clarity Water Management System.

CLARITY WMS Water Conservation Solutions:

Clarity WMS is a water management tool integrated with PPS Stations or controls that record rainfall and water usage as daily and monthly totals. Real time rain monitoring allows Clarity WM to pause operation during and after rainfall events to help conserve energy and water This will help the end user with the increasing scrutiny over water rights, permits, and annual allowances.

• Historical Trend Graphs   • Daily or monthly water usages   • Year-To-Date averages   

• 7-Day Scheduler   • Automatic Rain Shut Down   • Simple and Intuitive Interface Design


With advanced controls only offered by PPS, each pump station can be easily programmed to Limit the Amount of Water Available to Users. This allows the water purveyor to ensure that usage does not exceed water rights, saving thousands and, in many cases, millions of gallons per year!


Clarity Water Management SoftwareUsing a modem, each PPS pump station can be remotely accessed to allow users to monitor pump station flow, pump flow, trending history, daily-monthly-yearly usage logs, wet well levels, and so many more conditions to save overall maintenance and cost.


Dashboard Web-Based ControlPPS Clarity Software saves water by allowing the user complete control; monitoring several pump stations with one dashboard, scheduling days for the pump station to run, and weather data/rain shutdown. Never irrigate again while it is raining!

PPS has the solutions. Let’s work together to save this much-needed resource for the future of the Treasure Valley. Contact Robert Dickson at Rob@Gopas.us or Rob Aldinger at Rob@gopps.com to learn more about Clarity WMS and how we can help your communities save water.
