Perhaps one of the most important issues facing our region currently is water conservation. With increasing demand for water from the growing population along the Front Range, and projected decreases in water availability given changes in climate, conservation of this precious resource is more important than ever. The Water Conservation Action Team focuses on helping Congress Park neighbors find ways to reduce their water usage both inside and outside of the home.
In 2018-2019, the Water Conservation Action Team is exploring hosting events such as:
- A Neighborhood Walkshop featuring water-wise gardens and yards throughout Congress Park
- A Workshop on Indoor Water Savings Opportunities
- A Campaign to support Efficient Landscape Irrigation
- Promoting Rain Barrels
Want to get involved?
The Water Conservation Action Team needs volunteers interested in water conservation and water-wise landscaping. If you are interested, please contact Liz Goehring at firstname.lastname@example.org or Susan Bardwell at email@example.com
