Session(s):

Flowing Towards Savings: Harnessing Landscape Water Efficiency for Homes and Communities »

2024 Spring Conference, May 9, 2024 10:40 am

As Utah experiences increasing strain on our water resources from climate change and growth, water wise landscapes - or Localscapes - have become a hot topic. Water wise landscapes reduce the amount of water a landscape needs by 50% or more, beautify our communities, create pollinator habitat, and help us better integrate water and land use planning. In recent years, Utah has made important progress towards water wise landscape transformation by scaling-up turf replacement incentives and by adopting local water efficient landscaping codes for new development and redevelopment. In this session, speakers will share funding opportunities, design resources, lessons learned, barriers, and other best practices for cities, counties and water providers interested in advancing water wise landscaping in their own communities. .
