Wanted: Water Conservation Consultant

For a “Jump Start” (Water Conservation and Efficiency) Tool Kit for Water Service Providers

Monday, July 21, 2014

The California Urban Water Conservation Council is developing a “Jump Start” Tool Kit that will help water service providers quickly ramp up their water conservation efforts to respond to the current drought emergency. 

Many water service providers are small and may not have the resources or occasion to develop a full range of water conservation and efficiency programs. This tool kit will provide turn-key tools for water agencies that get maximum water savings in a minimum amount of time.

The Council requests proposals for a consultant to aid in the development of the “Jump Start” Tool Kit.
