1. Innovative / new measures can easily be modeled using an end use model. 2. Key difference between modeling an innovative conservation measure (AMI meters) & a conventional measure (toilets) is the need to estimate water savings, costs, and implementation rates with little published data. 3. Conservation program savings actually adopted ranged from 5% to 16% over ∼20 years. 4. Many new and innovative conservation programs have been found to be cost effective!

New research, new technologies and a stronger interest in water efficiency are coming together to instill a new water conservation ethic in the United States. Many utilities have developed or are developing and implementing conservation programs to facilitate water resource management. In effort to control water use, there is an ongoing need to become more efficient in controlling water losses in water system infrastructure and at the end use of every tap at the other end of the pipe. The only way to effect changes at the customer end is to regulate the products being installed. Maximum Performance Testing (MAP) is a major driving force in the improvement of toilet flush performance in North America. Water Sense® program administered by USEPA has helped customers save a cumulative 487 billion gallon of water and energy bills through a nation-wide campaign. The California Friendly® campaign has expanded state wise to use native plants to match ocean, bay, and landscapes.
