The City of Evans is located in Colorado’s Northern Front Range and receives its drinking water from the South Platte River Basin. The City faces dual challenges of growing population and drought. Evans is home to more than 21,000 people and has seen a population growth rate of about 2% every year since 2010, which has put a strain on the City’s water supply and threatens to limit economic development opportunities. WaterNow Alliance and Western Resource Advocates supported the City’s design of the program that will provide income qualifying homeowners with indoor water efficiency audits and direct installation of water efficient fixtures including toilets, faucet aerators, and showerheads, along with energy efficient lightbulbs, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
