Introduction to Water Conservation Program Planning
***PLEASE NOTE - Recordings of both Parts 1 and 2, along with related handouts, are hosted on a Thinkific course page. Access costs $75/person. Click here to gain access.***
This is the first class module in what would ultimately be a series of courses on water efficiency and conservation. This course, split into two recorded sessions, is an overview of planning steps for a successful water conservation program that incorporates the basic steps from Amy Vickers’s widely referenced Handbook of Water Use and Conservation and other planning sources.
The course presentation includes:
- Common conservation and efficiency definitions and concepts and units of water measurement;
- Long-term conservation strategies compared to short-term drought response;
- Impacts of conservation on future water demands and water and wastewater capital facility planning and costs;
- Contrasts between water supply-side and demand-side economics, policies, and planning approaches;
- Why and how to establish water saving goals for conservation plans;
- Water use data analytics and how to evaluate common customer demand characteristics and per capita metrics;
- Connections between water demands and water quality, population, environment, health, and climate; and
- Features of successful conservation programs.
A recorded discussion among Amy, Mary Ann and live webinar participants follows the presentations, and numerous handouts are available to view and down by paid participants.
