Fall ‘20 Project Accelerator: Evans, CO

Direct Install Program for Income-Qualified Residents and Indoor Water Efficiency Audits Our Approach Project Outcomes

Project Goal

WaterNow Alliance and Western Resources Advocates (WRA) partnered with the City of Evans to develop a water efficient fixture direct installation program for income-eligible residents and an indoor water efficiency audit program that will be accessible to residents of all income levels.

Our Approach

The water efficient fixture direct installation program used a two-pronged approach to optimize water resources in the City of Evans. The project first gathered information and feedback from staff, stakeholders, and the public. It then focused on supporting installation of water-efficient fixtures. Appliances provided through the direct installation program may include toilets, shower heads, faucet aerators, and others, at no cost to income-eligible residents. WaterNow and WRA also developed an outreach and communications toolkit, by collating best practices from similar programs; engaging with key stakeholders; and developing an outreach plan and materials.
