H2ORegsCO App and Website
Get the Right Rules, Right Now
Every water supplier in Colorado has different watering guidelines making it cumbersome to locate the information needed in a timely manner. Today, this information is obtained by visiting the water supplier’s website, or placing a phone call or email to the respective water supplier which can often take a lot of time. It is also not always clear to both professionals and customers who or where to call with questions.Purpose
Colorado WaterWise (CWW) has developed a tool that will help connect water providers with the contractors and landscape professionals that work within their jurisdictions and will ultimately promote outdoor water efficiency.
The Smartphone application consolidates and houses a considerable amount of utility code, ordinance and procedural information into a single application to display the most current information regarding outdoor water-use for both landscape construction and maintenance practices in a few simple clicks. The App provides an informational vehicle for utilities to communicate with landscape field professionals in need of code, ordinance, or policy and procedure information.
CWW partnered with the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado and the Colorado Association of Lawn Care Professionals to sponsor the development of the app. The Colorado Water Conservation Board has also helped to guide and develop the project.
H2ORegsCO is a tool that utilities want and a tool that the landscaping industry needs. It’s a win-win for both sides of the equation.
“The H2ORegsCO App and Website provides a useful tool for tracking down applicable regulations in different municipalities. Sometimes these regulations can be distributed across several documents, or buried deep within a document, so we plan to use the App to expedite our search for applicable regulations when preparing water efficiency plans.”
