Real-World Success Stories

Hospitality Investors Trust (HIT REIT)

HIT REIT is a real estate investment trust that manages an array of hotel properties throughout the United States. Faced with soaring water bills and no actionable knowledge of where the issues sprung from, they aimed to cut water use and costs. They urgently needed tools for real-time water usage tracking, leak detection, and the ability to analyze water bills across their properties so they could address problems swiftly and prevent waste.

HIT REIT turned to Banyan Water, a leader in the emerging field of smart water management.

While working with Banyan’s EPA Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper (QWEL) irrigation auditors identified 514 leaks and system issues (i.e., broken sprinkler heads, coverage issues, etc.) in 50 plus properties.

In implementing Banyan’s smart irrigation solution, they installed real-time leak detection software and ET-based irrigation scheduling to optimize water usage. Furthermore, Banyan’s utility bill verification provided a clear picture of the program’s savings with accurate measurements giving data-based insights into their water conservation efforts.

Since employing Banyan Water on ten properties, HIT REIT has achieved remarkable results. These include a 72% reduction in water consumption and associated costs; saving a whopping 10,523,358 gallons of water.

HIT REIT has now been empowered to solve their water usage problems and curb wasteful water consumption. They can now identify leaks, fine-tune their irrigation schedules based on weather data, and detect infrastructure concerns. This proactive approach led to substantial financial savings; as well as resonated with HIT REIT’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) objectives.


Hewlett-Packard (HP) is a leading technology company that is committed to creating technology that makes life better for everyone while reducing its impact on the planet. As part of its sustainable impact strategy, HP aims to reduce its water consumption in global operations by 15% by 2025. However, achieving this goal was not an easy task.

In 2017, HP partnered with Banyan Water to deploy Banyan’s Smart Irrigation solution at HP’s Palo Alto campus. The software’s predictive analytics, monitoring capabilities, and significant savings supported HP’s reduction strategy. It was also adaptable to HP’s water reclamation system, operated by Stantec, a leading global design and engineering firm.

Since implementing Banyan’s water management solutions at HP’s Palo Alto campus, HP has achieved remarkable water conservation. Furthermore, they achieved cost reduction, asset value enhancement, and operational efficiency.

Some of the key results are:

– In 2018, HP saved over 14 million gallons of water annually, reducing irrigation water usage by 42% compared to prior usage in 2017 and 35% compared to the 2015 baseline.

– Banyan’s real-time leak detection capabilities helped detect and prevent over 20 leaks on HP’s campus, saving millions of gallons of additional water waste.

– HP increased its net operating income and asset value by reducing water bills and operating expenses. It also improved operational efficiency by leveraging Banyan’s real-time water use data, web platform, and remote monitoring and control capabilities.

Thacher School

The Thacher School is a boarding school in Ojai, California, prone to droughts. The school was concerned about reducing its water consumption and expenses while maintaining its beautiful landscapes and providing its students and staff with the best services.

To achieve this, The Thacher School partnered with Banyan Water, which provides smart water management services. They installed Banyan’s Smart Irrigation solution, which uses data to predict and manage water use across the school’s campus.

Their collaborative efforts won them the 2018 Environmental Leader Product of the Year Award. They have reduced 56% in annual water usage since 2013 through various water conservation projects. To start, they installed low-flow devices in dorms and faculty homes. Next, they upgraded irrigation systems, implemented selective watering, and used greywater from dormitory laundry machines to irrigate trees. What’s more, they have saved up to 550,000 gallons of water annually. Finally, they have also developed a new water-conserving athletic field at Upper Field and installed the Banyan water usage monitoring system.

Thacher School’s partnership with Banyan Water is an excellent example of how technology can help address water shortages sustainably through market-based solutions.
