HUD and EPA have launched a series of webcasts on water conservation and water efficiency for HUD partners and stakeholders. The next Water Wednesday webinar - Communicating the Need for Water Efficiency - will be held June 17, 2015, from 2:00–3:00 p.m. Eastern Time (11:00am-noon Pacific Mountain).

The “Water Wednesdays” webinar series is a free monthly webinar series to help HUD project officers, grantees, and affordable housing owners or managers to incorporate water efficiency into their programs and projects.  EPA’s WaterSense program is hosting this webinar series and they will provide information on tools and resources that help public housing agencies, and assisted and affordable multi-family housing managers save water, energy and money.  

Please register for the free May 27 webcast and the following live webinars using the links on the attached flyer, OR the link provided below.  

  • Introducing WaterSense & Quantity Quotes – Now available at: https://youtu.be/FuheCmWRx6Q
  • WaterSense and LEED Housing Programs - June 17, 2015, 2:00–3:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 11 a.m. Pacific Time
  • More webinar dates for July, August and September will be announced soon.

The WaterSense program has a variety of consumer campaigns that can be used to amplify water conservation messages and help consumers adopt water-efficient behaviors. Although the impetus of the webinars is the California drought and Governor Brown’s recently-announced emergency water restrictions, the webinar will be relevant for communities across the U.S. looking to save water and improve water quality. 

With summer around the corner and emergency drought conditions persisting throughout California, these webinars could not be timelier.  California is not alone in facing a drought or the need to conserve water. Just last week, Governor Inslee declared the drought in Washington State a statewide emergency.  The southwest and Midwest are also experiencing abnormally dry conditions. The Water Wednesdays will be relevant to a national audience.
