We Work with Schools and Colleges on Water Efficiency Projects.
In 2011, 250 urinals were replaced with high-efficiency models through rebates from the city. Another school was assisted by the rebate program to replace 39 old flush-valve toilets with 1.28 models. And a student housing facility replaced 102 toilets in 2008, and now uses about 114,000 gallons less per month than before the upgrade.
We install water-efficient fixtures in city owned buildings. In 2007, City Hall, City Hall Annex and A Street buildings were retrofitted with low-flow toilets. The combined savings are, on average, 300,000 gallons of water per year. A project to upgrade toilets at the Union Colony Civic Center is in the works.
Avoid Raw Water Surcharges
Some commercial and industrial customers receive an annual allotment of water based on tap size. When annual usage exceeds a user's allotment, a raw water surcharge is assessed. When a customer receives a surcharge, the water conservation program works with these customers to move them off the surcharge list.
Since the program began, 43 percent of surcharge customers got off the list with help from Greeley's water conservation programs.
We’re Here to Help!
We collaborate with other Northern Colorado water providers to create resources and tools to assist industrial, commercial, and institutional customers with water conservation. Visit Northern Colorado Collaborative Efforts in ICI Water Conservation website to get more information.
