2016 Colorado WaterWise Membership Structure

Thursday, January 07, 2016 8:44 AM | Laura Wing (Administrator)

Colorado WaterWise exists to stimulate and support water conservation in Colorado.  Over the last year, the Colorado Water Wise Board (CWW) has been working hard to develop a strategic plan to ensure that CWW will remain sustainable.  As part of that effort, we have revised our membership structure. 

Colorado WaterWise does five things;

ü  Creates conservation tools,

ü  Connects water efficiency professionals,

ü  Collaborates with partners on efficiency projects,

ü  Contributes to water efficiency policy,

ü  Communicates these initiatives to the Colorado water conservation community.

Through past support Colorado WaterWise has:

  • Created award-winning materials for the Colorado Water: Live Like You Love It Toolkit (visit http://lovecoloradowater.org/);
  • Created a Colorado Outdoor Water Regulation Guide Smart Phone App that puts accurate and current landscape and water rules at the fingertips of landscape professionals;
  • Connected over 100 efficiency professionals through our Water Efficiency Workshops for Colorado Plumbing and  Lunch n’ Learn series;
  • Collaborated with the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the Water Research Foundation, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, and Cavanaugh & Associates to host five AWWA M36 Water Audit and Loss Control Workshops in September 2015;
  • Provided expert testimony to the Colorado legislature regarding efficiency proposals; and
  • Hosted an informative, engaging and inspiring annual Summit  in the fall.

In order to sustain this work, a new annual membership structure for utilities has been put in place.  It looks like this:

  • Student Membership ($50)
  • Basic Membership ($250)
  • Industry Membership ($1,000)
  • Small Utilities, with 10 or fewer employees, have a membership fee of $500.  Included in this membership are:
    • Quarterly Newsletter;
    • Case Study Library;
    • BP Guidebook;
    • A discount for 1 registration to the Annual Event; and
    • Access to CWW Utility Tools including the Smart Phone App and the Live Like You Love It (LLYLI) Toolkit materials.  You can learn more about LLYLI participation levels here: http://lovecoloradowater.org/participation-levels/.
  • Medium Utilities, with between 11 and 50 employees, have a membership fee of $1,000.  Included in this membership are everything included for the Small Utilities as well as a discount on a second registration (2 total) to the Annual Event.
