As the third largest city in Colorado, Aurora is located just east of the state’s capital of Denver. Like many communities along Colorado’s Front Range, Aurora has a rapidly growing population. Meeting future water demands requires not only additional acquisition, but wise use of its existing water supply through conservation. Among its many conservation and efficiency programs, the Aurora Water Low-Income Water Efficiency Program (LIWEP) was created in 2011 to help low-income households become more water efficient by replacing old fixtures with new, high efficiency models. Instead of conducting this program entirely in-house, Aurora partnered with the non-profit, Mile High Youth Corps (MHYC).
