The Commercial, Industrial and Institutional Water Conservation Committee is continuing the work of the Northern Colorado ICI Water Conservation Workgroup. For more information on the accomplishments of the workgroup, please see the report.
Inspired in part by the work of the ICI Water Conservation Workgroup, a CII Water Assessment Tool is being developed. The tool can be used by water utility staff, professional engineers, and end users alike to assess their water use while still allowing more advanced auditors to change assumptions and customize fields.
The CII Web Tool is being updated. To be added to the distribution list to receive a copy of the CII Water Assessment Tool once it's available in March 2015, please contact the Brendle Group.
We need members with experience or interest in ICI water conservation to join this committee. Contact us if you would like to help with the some of the action items the workgroup came up with, listed below.
