This legacy CUWCC resource from 2015 includes Model Water Shortage Contingency Plans, Water Waste Ordinances and Enforcement Primer, Water Shortage Pricing Primer, Water Loss and Supply Alternatives Primer, Customer Programs and Communication/Outreach Primer, Local Water Supply Fact Sheet, Water Use and Loss Awareness Resources, Water School Curriculum, and Water Resource Funding Primer
This tool provides examples of how water agencies implemented and enforced water waste ordinances in 2012-2017, what they learned, the changes they made for the current and/or future droughts, and advice for those interested in implementing a similar program.
This primer identifies popular and effective water efficiency programs, along with the communication and outreach strategies that have been used by California water suppliers to educate customers, influence water use behaviors, and realize water savings.
In this tool, we explore how different water agencies are using new and enhanced metering, sensor, and aerial imaging technology to provide useful data for tackling drought enforcement and conservation programming while providing customers with the tools they need to become effective water managers.
Written and designed by G3: Green Gardens Group, this publication was made possible with funding from the California Water Efficiency Partnership, Surfrider Foundation, Water Efficiency Trust and the generous sponsors of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers California Chapter.

Want to conserve water? Not sure where to start? Our Water Calculator quickly estimates how much water your household uses and compares it to a similar average and a highly efficient home.
The Water Calculator also shows you where to begin your home water conservation efforts. Throughout Home Water Works, you’ll find useful tips and resources for saving water and money without sacrificing comfort or convenience. The Home Water Works web site was created by the Alliance for Water Efficiency and was made possible by a grant from The Home Depot Foundation. The water calculator was originally created by The Field Museum and was modified for this web site by the Alliance for Water Efficiency in cooperation with The Field Museum.
