December 11, 2012 — Valley Irrigation has announced the formation of Valley Water Management (VWM), a new division of the Valmont company Cascade Earth Sciences (CES). Initially, Valley Water Management will enter the North American market with custom engineered pumping stations. Service for these solutions will be provided by Valley dealers.

For producers who are building a new reservoir, drawing from a canal, or using well fields to supply their irrigation needs, Valley Water Management can offer a custom engineered, high efficiency pumping station.

“For nearly 60 years, Valley has been the most trusted name in irrigation,” said Wade Sikkink, Director of Valley Water Management. “With decades of experience from numerous large and small mechanized irrigation designs completed by our professional engineering and agricultural teams, Valley Water Management will utilize that expertise to provide a custom pumping solution to meet each grower’s needs. Producers will save on costs due to correctly sized pumps and components for their operation, as well as through using energy saving Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) that are used with the stations.”

Valley Water Management pumping stations come with remote control and monitoring capabilities through the Valley BaseStation2. With the BaseStation2, producers can check the status of their pump from a Smartphone, tablet or laptop.
