The Water and Wastewater measures proposed in the CAP aim to reduce both the strain on water supplies and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from pumping and treatment activities.
The Water and Wastewater category is composed of two strategies and four measures with supporting efforts. The CAP’s Water and Wastewater measures will contribute:
- less than 0.1% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2020 target;
- 1% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2030 target;
- 0.5% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2050 goal.
Strategy W-1 – Reduce Potable Water Consumption
Measure W-1.1 – Increase Water Efficiency in New
Measure W-1.2 – Reduce Outdoor Water Use
Measure W-1.3 – Reduce Potable Water Consumption at
Strategy W-2 – Increase Rainwater Use
Measure W-2.1 – Increase Rain Barrel Installations
