Landscape Water Use Efficiency Awards
Alameda County Water District’s (ACWD’s) landscape water use efficiency awards are for organizations who tracked at or below their calculated landscape water use budget, which is based on weather and site characteristics. Water use efficiency efforts contribute to our community’s water supply reliability and are greatly appreciated and more meaningful than ever as California experiences another critically dry year. ACWD recognizes that members of our community have faced unprecedented challenges and hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic and would like to commend and congratulate these local organizations for their water use efficiency during such a difficult time.
