DuPage Water Commission
Update: The project was completed in November 2013.
To address the rising cost of water and the need to conserve limited resources, the DuPage Water Commission (DWC) created a Water Conservation and Protection Program (WCAPP). The purpose of the WCAPP is to provide all water users in DuPage County with a consistent message about water conservation and provide DWC customers witht he tools needed to be good stewards of our finite supply of water. With this in mind, DWC applied to CMAP's LTA program to assist in developing a series of educational workshops targeted to municipalities and water conservation coordinators. CMAP partnered with the Metropolitan Planning Council and MWH Global to develop a educational and informative workshops about conservation, pricing, and resources.
In addition to the four-part workshop series, a resource guide was developed as a resource for use by anyone in northeastern Illinois with questions about water management. The guide is organized into five sections. The first four contain resources that correspond to the four workshops (Utility Planning and Asset Management, Changing Regulations and Ordinances, Managing Indoor and Outdoor Water Use, Water Rates and Revenues). Links to the workshop presentations can be found on the section cover pages. The fifth section includes overview documents as well as contact information for all of the workshop presenters.
