Net Blue: Initial Offset Research

As part of the first phase of work on Net Blue, the Alliance for Water Efficiency released its report, Water Offset Policies for Water-Neutral Community Growth, which reviewed communities throughout the United States that currently have a water demand offset policy or water neutral growth policy in place. These policies require that projected water demand of new development be offset with water efficiency measures to create a neutral impact on overall service area demands and water use. The report also contains a literature review related to this topic, and information on communities that had a water demand offset policy in the past.
