New Frontiers in Water Efficiency: Integrating Land Use and Water Supply DecisionsTraining Type(s): Education, Webinar

What happens to our rivers and groundwater as population growth drives the need for increased water supply? How can communities ensure that new development doesn’t further stress water sustainability? Join us for a webinar to learn about Net Blue, an innovative approach to support sustainable community growth. By requiring new residential and commercial developments to offset their water use through water-efficient retrofits of existing development, communities can continue to grow without increasing their overall water use or requiring new water withdrawals from rivers and aquifers.
This webinar will provide an overview of water efficiency practices and opportunities, share examples of how communities have used this water neutral development approach, and how you can use new Net Blue tools, including a model ordinance toolkit, in your community.
