In an interview, Brett Koutnik, IREM Regional VP, talked about water conservation efforts in Georgia, which has been heavily impacted by drought. The most visible and immediate impact of water shortage was on outdoor watering and its effect on the landscaping. They implemented low cost conservation steps immediately, including the installation of low-flow aerators on faucets. They also performed cost-benefit analyses of more expensive conservation measures and improvements, like installing low-flow toilets and urinals in the restrooms and made recommendations to their owners about these potential improvements. Education and communication are both key. They let their clients know about the installation of the water restrictors on the faucets, the reduction and/or elimination of seasonal color, and any other noticeable changes that they made.
