Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash -  November 2012

 


Water Efficiency Committee
Amy Talbot, Chair

August was a busy month for the Water Efficiency Committee. We hosted two webinars: Outdoor Water Use Efficiency (August 20 with the WI Section Water Efficiency Committee) and Using Green Codes to Garner Water Use Efficiency (August 29).

For the Green Codes Webinar, Amy Talbot and Thomas Pape presented to Illinois AWWA members on the advantages of using green codes to achieve water efficiency in homes and businesses in Illinois. The presentation illustrated the diverse areas of water use that the codes can garner efficiency and water demand reduction without affecting lifestyles, services or commercial business interests. The presenters also showed how the codes can be used to customize and develop ordinances, service agreements, and rate structures that benefit both the water provider and the water user.

Green codes have proven to be successfully implemented by incorporation into the existing administration and enforcement of the codes and permitting divisions of a city or county. Some utilities have used the codes to reward efficient users with lower water costs. The webinar provides a comprehensive summary of the advantages of the green codes for Illinois water providers, and how to best use the codes in your water demand management plans.

Are you interested in learning more? Both webinars are still available on the ISAWWA website under the Training section or linked here. All webinars are free for members.
