|As extreme drought conditions threaten western states, hear from multifamily housing water efficiency experts who reach beyond the low-hanging fruit of faucet aerators and low-flow showerheads to implement deepwater conservation measures. Learn about innovative irrigation and landscape design techniques, rainwater harvesting systems, and cutting-edge toilet monitoring and leak detection technologies.|

- Hear how Challenge partner Atlanta Housing (AH) has eliminated the use of potable water for outdoor irrigation and reduced indoor potable water use at one community center by installing a rainwater collection system and implementing several other high-efficiency measures
- Discover smart irrigation solutions using weather-based irrigation management via cloud-based software platforms
