Colorado River Basin Stakeholders Moving Forward to Address Challenges Identified in the Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study

Phase 1

Municipal and Industrial Conservation Water and Reuse Workgroup

Municipal and Industrial (M&I) water conservation and reuse were common options in the strategies explored in the Colorado River Basin Study to provide a cost-effective solutions for resolving water supply and demand imbalances in the near-term. The Workgroup’s Phase 1 objectives were to document trends in M&I water conservation and reuse in areas receiving Colorado River water and to identify opportunities and challenges for expanding M&I water conservation and reuse programs to address projected future imbalances and to enhance the resiliency of the Colorado River system.

Chapter 3 of the Phase 1 Report is a product of the Workgroup and documents the Workgroup’s Phase 1 activities.

This Workgroup is led by three Co-Chairs:

  • Kathy Ferris – Arizona Municipal Water Users Association
  • Jack Safely – The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California
  • Marc Waage – Denver Water
