Use and Effectiveness of Municipal Irrigation Restrictions During Drought (AWE)

Published: January 2nd, 2020 | |

Report by the Alliance for Water Efficiency

Drought conditions prompt dramatic actions by water utilities to curb customer water demand. These actions are typically focused on limiting the frequency of lawn watering and, in more severe cases, may extend to mandatory curtailment. However, effectiveness of different actions or levels of implementation remain poorly understood or documented. The Use and Effectiveness of Municipal Irrigation Restrictions During Drought study was undertaken by the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) to bridge this information gap.
