GLRPPR Sector Resource: Water Offset Policies for Water-Neutral Community Growth: A Literature Review and Case Study Compilation

Title:
Water Offset Policies for Water-Neutral Community Growth: A Literature Review and Case Study Compilation

Abstract:
In this report, AWE aimed to identify and document water demand offset policies for new development that mitigate the impact on the total water demand in a watershed or utility service area. For example, if a developer seeks a permit to construct a new subdivision, a community may require the projected water consumption for the development to be offset by water use reductions in off-site end uses before approval is granted. Such policies often include on-site efficiency requirements as well. This research report primarily focuses on policies in which the offset is achieved via the implementation of water efficiency measures, and not on offsets that are achieved via other methods such as securing new supply or letting agricultural land go fallow.
