Colorado WaterWise will continue its successful Lunch’ n Learns launched in 2015. Our first by Oracle is Thursday, March 10th from 12:30-2:00. See Events page for details.
Last year we conducted three successful Lunch’ n Learns open to membership and the general public. These informative sessions were designed to introduce different aspects of urban conservation to industry professionals, commercial practitioners, and people just interested in conservation. The first was from Pacific Northwest National Lab’s Kate-McMordie Stoughton on the Federal Energy Management Program, or FEMP, which includes BMPs for federal entities to implement to meet their Executive Order goals. Many of these practices coincide with municipal conservation plans, programs and incentives, and have been implemented in many parts of Colorado. Next we heard about CWW’s Smart Phone App for Colorado Outdoor Water Ordinances. If you’d like to become a user of this tool, email us. Finally, we heard from Rick Schultz from Town of Castle Rock on their innovative Municipal Landscape Program. Each of these sessions was well-attended and provided valuable discussion on how we’re achieving conservation in different ways. We look to partner with other water organizations to share these in-person learning opportunities; let us know if you’d like to help spread the word.
Look for more sessions this year discussing different technologies that are progressing water conservation.
