The WUEA program focused on larger commercial, industrial and institutional users and invited these entities to undergo a water-use assessment. Participation in the program was voluntary, and the City funded the assessments as an incentive to program participants.
GeoEngineers scientists and field staff conducted the assessments, which generally included:
In addition to creating print communications that promote the program, GeoEngineers provided the City and WUEA participants with reports that summarized technical findings and provided recommendations regarding water use and conservation opportunities.
