Water Now: Tap into Resilience Toolkit (Water Re-Use/One Water Resources)

Posted By Johanna M. Bell, Friday, August 2, 2019

Tapping into Resilience Toolkit (TiR Toolkit)

Onsite, localized water infrastructure has tremendous potential to address our communities' water needs – from drinking water to wastewater to stormwater management. But scaling up investment in and implementation of these solutions and strategies can be challenging.

The Tap into Resilience Toolkit is an interactive resource for utility decision makers, management, and staff. The Tap into Resilience Toolkit provides answers to local government financing, tax, accounting, and legal questions that arise when scaling investment in decentralized solutions. The Toolkit includes interactive financing and implementing modules, videos, a resource library, a portal to receive pro-bono support, and much much more.

The Toolkit resources have been designed to help Idaho cities explore, plan for, finance and adopt localized infrastructure solutions like water use efficiency programs, green infrastructure, and onsite reuse.

Click HERE to access the Toolkit; and click HERE to access an informative webinar, aired on July 23, 2019!
