Abstract/Contents:Focuses on pump stations used on golf courses, and the the energy they use. States that "a golf irrigation pump station can account for up to 50% of a golf course facility 's energy use." Offers tips for saving energy from pumping, suggesting; "installing energy-efficient hardware"; "operating the pumping system to ensure the pump runs at its best efficiency point (BEP) as long as possible"; and "watering less; therefore pumping less."
