Banyan Water and The Thacher School Named a 2019 Environmental Leader Project of the Year Winner

, the leading provider of total water management software,
announced today that its ongoing partnership with The
Thacher School
, an Ojai, California-based private boarding school,
was named a 2019 Environmental Leader Project of the Year award winner.

Water scarcity and drought are near-constant threats to The Thacher
School’s staff, students and overall operability. Thacher
decision-makers implemented numerous water-reduction methods across
campus, but soon realized the school—427 acres of diverse landscapes and
buildings with varying water requirements—could benefit from the
adoption of a total water management solution.

In partnering with Banyan, The Thacher School leverages the full power
of IoT devices and Banyan Water Central—Banyan’s flagship software
platform and a 2018 Environmental Leader Product of the Year winner—to:

  • Monitor and detect leaks in real time.
  • Track indoor and outdoor water usage in real time or over designated
  • Gain insight and visibility into water usage trends across campus
    through advanced data analysis.
  • Identify and correct excess water use to create new cost-efficiencies
    and achieve financial savings.

Between its own internal sustainability initiatives and its partnership
with Banyan that deploys the latest innovations in IoT and software
solutions, Thacher has achieved 56 percent water savings since 2013.

“We’re thrilled with the results we’ve achieved with Banyan’s smart
water technology,” said Ed Bennett, head of facilities at Thacher. “Not
only have we been able to accelerate our water conservation efforts, but
we’ve successfully integrated our students, faculty and alumni into our
ongoing sustainability plans by visualizing our water usage and savings
through Banyan’s platform.”

The annual award program, now in its seventh year, recognizes the most
innovative and successful commercial and industrial products and
projects in the environment and energy space. Judged by an independent
panel of industry experts, the winners are selected based on the success
of the project, the capabilities of the product and the positive effect
on the industry. The winners were formally recognized and celebrated at
the Environmental Leader & Energy Manager Conference on May 14, 2019, at
the Marriott Denver Tech Center.

“The Banyan team is honored to receive this award in partnership with
Thacher,” said Gillan Taddune, CEO of Banyan Water. “Thacher’s
commitment to responsible water use underscores Banyan’s mission to
preserve Earth’s most precious resource. We’re proud to work with
Thacher and other sustainability-minded properties across the country to
provide the software necessary to conserve water at scale.”
