The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) Water Conservation Tracking Tool is a program that allows water utilities to analyze various water conservation strategies and design conservation programs to maximize water savings and benefits while minimizing costs. The tool operates through Microsoft Excel and integrates real data from individual water utilities, allowing personalized and standardized analyses of water savings, costs, and benefits in two different units (i.e., English and metric). Water utility managers can design custom water conservation programs by selecting (up to 50) described and integrated conservation strategies. Further, the tool allows for both comparative planning exercises and real-time monitoring of water use, cost, and benefit changes after the implementation of conservation strategies. The AWE Water Conservation Tracking Tool is free for AWE members, and comes in three versions depending on the plumbing code and appliance standards of a user’s state. Current versions include California/Texas, Georgia, and the Standard Edition (includes all states except CA, TX, and GA). Users also receive a detailed User Guide and one free hour of technical support from AWE staff.
