Ask a customer if they use the right amount of water and get ready to hear some horn tooting. However, this self-defined sense of efficiency probably comes more from a deficit of information than a surplus of ego.
Aurora Water created the Know Your Flow program in 2017 to address the information gap in customers’ understanding of how efficiently they’re using water. Through monthly email updates, Aurora Water compares customers’ water use to benchmarks adjusted for the unique characteristics of their household and property. This self-comparison approach helps customers see the invisible waste in their water use and provides a direct communication between Aurora Water’s Conservation staff and inefficient users.
Our presentation will cover the operations of the program, its effect on participants’ water consumption and what Aurora’s staff has learned about benchmarking efficiency in its customers base.

An ideal water program will provide the capability to withstand, adapt, and recover from a disaster as well as utilize a diversity of solutions to drive down water consumption and ensure long-term water availability. Thus, diversity of solutions and decreasing costs and waste contribute to resilience and are ultimate goals of an effective water program. This webinar will discuss how alternative solutions and resilience can work together to create an effective water program at the site level.
While it is not a prerequisite, we recommend taking the course Water Management Basics (FEMP37A) as this training would be of benefit.

CWW's August Board Meeting
Why Integrate Land Use and Water Resource Planning?
The Growing Water Smart program helps communities bridge the gap
between water management and land use planning to build a more resilient
future. This is especially important for Colorado as its population continues to
rapidly grow. From 1 million people in 1930 to over 5 million today, projections
now anticipate that Colorado’s population could nearly double by 2060. To
sustain this growth, Colorado will need to better manage its water supply.
Although Colorado is a headwater state, the state’s water supply faces
increasing uncertainty with over-appropriated river basins, longer droughts,
and more frequent fires. The Colorado Water Plan predicts that by 2050 the
state could have a supply gap of up to 560,000 acre-feet.
