This workshop will convene stakeholders from the water utility sector, health departments and local governments as well as outside experts for the purpose of examining innovative practices in water efficiency, Irrigation Smart Technologies and Developing Ordinances for small Towns. Examples of successful Water Efficiency Measures, a road map to implementing the State Water Plan with lessons learned that some water utilities both large and small have already adopted will be presented and discussed.
Participants will gain a broader understanding of the State Water Plan on Water Conservation/Efficiency and Irrigation Smart Technology. An interactive Panel Discussion with our experts on developing Model Ordinances will take place answering questions from the audience
