Bee Sweet Citrus Saves Water with New Pump Installation
FOWLER, CA - Bee Sweet is making efforts to save precious resources by recycling water amidst one of the strongest droughts to hit California.
“The California drought has significantly impacted the agriculture industry in many ways,” Jim Marderosian, President of Bee Sweet Citrus, said in a press release. “We need to make sure we are doing our part in conserving water and being a leader in California’s water wise movement.”
For landscaping purposes, the company is looking to recycled water via a newly-installed pump designed to collect water in a facility cold storage defroster.
“Water and agriculture go hand-in-hand,” Thomas Marderosian, Bee Sweet Citrus Industrial Technology Manager, stated in the release. “Our new pump will help us conserve water and will help shed light on California’s drought.”
The company’s Industrial Technology team installed the system, which it stated has been fully operational since July, reusing water that was once discarded for landscaping activities.
