AWE Research Launch & Panel Discussion

From Thirsty to Sustainable: Transforming Landscapes to Meet Our Water Challenges


Join us for an announcement from AWE President and CEO Mary Ann Dickinson as she shares the findings from AWE’s new Landscape Transformation study. This breakthrough, two-year research effort represents the most expansive and diverse assessment to date of utility-driven Landscape Transformation projects in North America – ranging from water-wise re-landscaping to turf removal and replacement to incentives for smart irrigation technology. Do these programs produce meaningful water savings? How do we tap into this source of supply? And perhaps most importantly, are homeowners ready for a shift to sustainable landscapes – and what might motivate them to make changes?
