Net Blue is a collaborative initiative of the Alliance for Water Efficiency, the Environmental Law Institute, and River Network to support sustainable community growth. The project team members developed a model ordinance that communities can tailor and customize to create a water demand offset approach meeting local needs. Communities in different regions throughout the United States were consulted to help develop the model ordinance and the offset components, and to ensure that the program is adaptable to many different political climates, legal frameworks, and environmental challenges.
This webinar will feature presentations from all three project team organizations. Presenters will provide an overview of the ordinance worksheet, the methodology for calculating water offsets, and the community outreach to a diverse group of cities throughout the United States.
