Riverside, Calif. – Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) has been selected by local irrigation manufacturer The Toro Company to receive its 2010 Watersmart Partner Award for their innovative water conservation program “FreeSprinklerNozzles.com”.

Launched in partnership with Toro, and Western Municipal Water District last July, the FreeSprinklerNozzle.com web site provides free Toro Precision Series Spray Nozzles to Riverside water customers who log into the site. These patented sprinkler nozzles use less water than conventional nozzles and help customers reduce their outdoor water use and lower water bills.

The international Watersmart Partner Award is given out by Toro to a select few each year that have gone above and beyond in their efforts to conserve water in an unconventional way.  In deciding the winners Toro looks at innovative use of product, its community benefits, and how partners help build strong reputations with Toro and their products.

“Clearly the FreeSprinklerNozzles.com program fits the bill,” said Toro District Sales Manager John Crossley.  “We are honored to present this award to RPU for this unique program that benefits Riverside’s water customers and educates them on how easy it is to reduce their outdoor water use.”

Last year more than 42,000 water-saving sprinkler nozzles were given out through the program that will provide annual water savings of more than 60 million gallons. The 2011 campaign is now underway and is again providing free nozzles to both Riverside water customers and those from other Inland Empire water providers.
