Water Rates Workshop Presentations Now Available

Monday, February 02, 2015

During the Council’s recent water rates workshops, more than 150 attendees heard from a wide variety of experts on how water utilities can assure fiscal stability while still sending effective conservation signals and complying with state law. The workshops were designed for general managers and financial officers and were made possible with funding from the California Department of Water Resources. The workshop also presented a new, open-source water rate-setting tool. Workshop partners included the Alliance for Water Efficiency, Association of California Water Agencies, California Urban Water Agencies, California Association of Sanitation Agencies, and the Cal-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association. The Council was further assisted with sponsorship from Group 3 members Dropcountr and WaterSmart Software.

For a complete list of speakers, and to view the presentations from both workshops, please click here or visit the Water Rates Workshop webpage.

EPA WaterSense H2Otel Recruitment Rally

Monday, January 26, 2015

EPA WaterSense is excited to continue the H2Otel Challenge through 2015! EPA launched the WaterSense H2Otel Challenge in February 2014 to encourage hotels to ACT: assess water use and savings opportunities, change products or processes to incorporate best management practices, and track their water-saving progress and achievements.

WaterSense needs help spreading the word about the H2Otel Challenge and is counting on our partners to encourage hotel customers in their service area to implement water efficiency best management practices. WaterSense is hosting a Recruiting Rally from February 1 to June 1, 2015 to incentivize this outreach. Any organization or individual can recruit hotels to sign up for WaterSense's H2Otel Challenge, but only WaterSense promotional partners are eligible to earn a top recruiter prize.

You can sign up now to recruit hotels and to access helpful recruitment materials on our partner website. To learn more, visit the H2Otel Challenge page!
