DEDHAM, MASS. – New England Irrigation, a water irrigation installation operator in the Northeast, announced that the company has completed a reclaimed water irrigation project at the newly constructed Legacy Place Mall in Dedham, Mass. 

The Legacy Place Mall is a 38-acre facility with multiple buildings, parking lots, turf and more than 4,000 trees and shrubs. New England Irrigation designed and installed a reclaimed water irrigation system that uses water from three tank farms totaling approximately 280,000 gallons to irrigate the turf, trees and shrubs located throughout the mall facility.

Water is captured and diverted through a series of piping systems that collect rainwater from rooftops and parking lot catch basins. The collected water is filtered and then pumped throughout the site to deliver a precise amount of water to each of the thousands of plant species. The system designed for this customer will irrigate the facility on a daily basis for a period of up to 12 days. One inch of rainwater will replenish the entire system. 

“We are pleased to have completed this state-of-the-art project for Legacy Place Mall,” said Eric Zima, owner of New England Irrigation. "The implementation of this project will not only beautify the natural landscape of this mall but will also reduce irrigation expenses for this customer at the same time. The challenge of this project was to balance the plant’s regular irrigation needs while ensuring adequate future water supply.”
