We are dedicated to addressing water scarcity by providing innovative solutions to governments, water management utilities, and growers. Our mission is to increase water availability and agricultural productivity through improved water-use efficiency. With advanced technology and a focus on precision water management, we empower our clients to optimize their water resources with unparalleled efficiency and control.

Rubicon Water targets these losses by delivering innovative solutions that enhance gravity-fed systems to improve water-use efficiency and promote a more sustainable future for agriculture and the wider community. 

The Challenge and Opportunity

Challenge: By 2050, it is estimated that a 56% increase in food and fiber production will be required to feed the growing global population, resulting in an increase in demand of already strained water resources. Adding to this, projections indicate that 40% of the population will reside in river basins experiencing severe water stress.  

Rubicon Water

Opportunity: Agriculture currently consumes 70% of the world’s freshwater resources, with only 40-50% of the water supplied through canal networks being efficiently used. 

Diverse, Deployable Water Management Technology

Our technology revolutionizes water management across a wide range of sectors.

With our solutions, irrigation districts can be transformed, on-farm water management can be improved, groundwater management can be implemented , dedicated environmental flows can be delivered, and aquaculture systems can be optimized.

 

We maximize the efficiency productivity sustainability of water by:

Improving Off-Farm Irrigation Water Management

Rubicon Water's TCC technology enhances the management of water for irrigation districts. By implementing our advanced systems, irrigation districts can significantly improve control in canal systems, ensuring a consistent and equitable service to irrigators through an automated on-demand system.

Environmental Flows

Rubicon Water's technology supports the delivery of dedicated environmental flows, ensuring that ecosystems receive the required water allocations for their health and sustainability
Our systems enable precise control and measurement of water flows, facilitating the implementation of environmental flow programs that benefit natural habitats and protect aquatic ecosystems.
