In this program, participants had the opportunity to:
  • Take the appropriate steps toward effective water loss control management, but it will also position your system to take advantage of future opportunities. The Colorado Water Conservation Board is scoping out future rounds of training that would consist of more advanced water loss management topics to build on the topics currently being offered. Full participation will make future grant funding proposals more competitive as those active participants will have a head start in understanding appropriate interventions for their water systems.​
  • Receive free training & technical assistance for AWWA M36 Water Auditing & Validation  
  • Learn where your loss costs are the greatest, and which should be a priority
  • Learn about data validation & how to daylight data issues
  • Determine next steps for water loss reduction and revenue recovery 
  • Enhance data reliability for your 1051 reporting to the CWCB
  • Adopt supply-side conservation practices considered BMPs by the CWCB, potentially relevant to future permit and funding applications  
This program has been offered at no cost, and eligible to drinking water system staff.
