|Name||Holistic Approach to Sustainable Water Management in Northwest Douglas County|
|Additional Authors||Organizations |
|Description||Thorough investigation of the water supply needs, infrastructure, and future of Douglas County. The study identifies two water management techniques that, particularly when paired together, offer an overlooked renewable water supply alternative for Colorado: precipitation management through rainwater and snow melt harvesting and outdoor water demand management through use of water efficient landscaping and irrigation practices. Rainwater harvesting is being practiced in at least seven other western states. However, current Colorado law does not allow rainwater harvesting to be utilized to its full advantage as one source of a sustainable water supply.|
