Do Water Budget Rate Structures Improve Water Efficiency? 

Thursday, January 26th, 2012



Within the past five years, two Front Range utilities dramatically changed their traditional increasing block water rate structure to an innovative water budget structure to improve water efficiencies and fairness. Is it working?   



Ken Baird and Erin Kintzle from the City of Boulder, and Billie Owens from the Town of Castle Rock, will share their

experiences in using water budget rates to address these issues.


This is a "must attend" event for utility management and conservation

specialists. Come prepared to participate in this lively discussion!


The luncheon will be held in the meeting room 

of the REI Store, 1416 Platte Street, in downtown Denver. From I-25 heading north, take the 23rd Ave exit; veer to the right onto Water St, which turns into Platte St. REI is on the right just beyond the underpass. From I-25 heading south, take the 20th St exit, turn right onto 20th St for a very short distance and then merge to the left onto Central St; turn left on 15th St, and then turn right onto Platte St. REI is on the left. Please park in the underground parking lot, which is accessed through the surface lot on the south side of the building. Note: REI Denver is also ~10 min walk from the Union Station Light Rail stop.
