Our Team

John Ossa, CID, CLIA, Project Manager

Mr. Ossa has been employed at Brookwater since 2020. He has an extensive background in the Green Industry as a consultant, designer and contractor extending over 40 years. He has certifications from the Irrigation Association for Commercial Irrigation Design and Landscape Irrigation Auditor.

While working for a Landscape Contractor routinely ranked among the Top 25 Contractors in the nation, as Irrigation Superintendent he designed and directed the installation of numerous large-scale irrigation systems. In addition, he managed an award winning commercial landscape water management program for large scale, corporate commercial properties.

Mr. Ossa also worked in a technical and sales capacity for an Australian manufacturer of innovative sub surface drip irrigation (SDI) technology. The knowledge gained from this employment, plus his experience as an early adopter of SDI contribute to a deep insight into the technologies that are available today. He has published peer reviewed articles on SDI as well.

Mr. Ossa’s industry involvement includes leading the Irrigation Association (IA) and American Society of Irrigation Consultants (ASIC) initiative that developed the 2014 Landscape Irrigation Best Management Practices. The BMPs hope to inform a range of activities from policy to the implementation of efficient irrigation practices. In 2007, he participated in the “Water Smart Landscape for California” Task Force initiated by California Assembly Bill 2717.
