Boulder County’s partnership with the Center for Resource Conservation to provide high efficiency toilets saves Boulder County residents between $80 and $250 annually on their water bills.
Boulder County Parks & Open Space provides incentives to local farmers to install water-efficient irrigation systems. These upgrades have improved water efficiency by at least 50%, increased crop production, and improved soil conservation.
Why it Matters
Boulder County Public Health has approved 12,669 on-site septic systems which helps ensure clean ground water and surface water.
In 2015, 64% of restaurants and 70% of autobody shops met or exceeded all stormwater best practices in five key areas.
Boulder County Public Health has been partnering with Boulder, Erie, Lafayette, Longmont, Louisville, and Superior to support the Keep It Clean Partnership (KICP) and collaborate to keep creeks and water ways clean and free of pollutants.
