Water Toolkit

Water has become a critical issue facing builders throughout much of the country. Home builders and community developers are impacted by issues of ongoing drought and aridification, flooding, water quality, stormwater, and aging infrastructure. These issues are influencing the pace of building, the ability to build in some areas, and housing affordability across the country. Creating capacity through efficiency and conservation, reducing potable water usage through use of alternative sources of water, managing stormwater as an asset and implementing creative solutions can keep builders building.
