Sustainable Arvada - Water
This strategic result tracks the effectiveness of the City’s water conservation programs. The City is currently working in partnership with the Center for ReSource Conservation and the Citizen Sustainability Committee to develop cost-effective programs to promote and measure water conservation.
This strategic result focuses on reducing water usage by the community, on a per capita basis, from 145 gallons per person per day in 2007 to 139 gallons per person per day (5 year running average). Per capita water use is calculated by dividing the gallons of water produced at the water treatment plants by Arvada's population. Per capita water usage is unique to each municipality or water district.
Water as a natural resource must be conserved. City Council and City staff are dedicated to providing education regarding water usage and other conservation programs as they become available to assist citizens and businesses use less water.
Data is gathered via City water billing and City population count.
