CII Water Conservation Workshop

As we plan for continued extreme drought and a 4th dry year, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) is hosting a public workshop to get input from water use efficiency leaders in commercial, industrial, and institutional (CII) on four key strategies for improving water conservation. The workshop will help inform the development of proposed DWR direct install programs for turf conversion/replacement and indoor fixture retrofits. Topics for discussion include:

    • How best to encourage and fund functional conventional turf conversion to climate-appropriate, efficient turf
    • What more can we do to support non-function turf replacement with drought tolerant landscaping
    • What is the best way to improve indoor CII fixture replacement
    • What training and technical assistance is needed

DWR is looking to CII leaders, in coordination with water suppliers and community organizations, to provide input on these strategies and other opportunities to advance CII conservation
