This webinar provides an in-depth introduction to the 2020 Texas Water Conservation Scorecard. The only effort of its kind in Texas, the Scorecard offers an extraordinarily detailed analysis of water conservation efforts at over 350 Texas water utilities. Jennifer Walker, Deputy Director of the Texas Coast and Water Program at the National Wildlife Federation leads the webinar, along with Ken Kramer, Water Resources Chair at the Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra, and Meghan Bock, Senior Business Analyst at AIQUEOUS.
An initiative of the Texas Living Waters Project, the Scorecard evaluates each utility on a range of criteria including compliance with conservation planning and reporting requirements, its record on water loss and meeting targets for water use reduction, outdoor watering limits, and rate-based incentives for efficient use of water.
Taken in conjunction with the 2016 report, the 2020 Scorecard reveals many utilities are not taking serious actions to advance water conservation.
For more information on the Scorecard’s methodology, results, and recommendations, take a look at the Scorecard website. The interactive site allows users to quickly identify individual utilities’ scores and analysis.
