Pioneers of smart water demand management
We’re honored to be featured in the July 5th, 2022 edition of the Denver Business Journal for our pioneering efforts in water demand management. An excerpt from the article reads:
When it comes to water, Harold Smethills doesn’t use the word “conservation.”
“We don’t believe in conservation. We don’t believe in it at all, because conservation means you have something you shouldn’t have had,” Smethills said.
Instead, the chairman of Sterling Ranch Development, located south of Chatfield State Park in Douglas County, thinks of himself as leading water demand efforts.
More than a decade after the 3,400-acre master-planned community was approved for development, residents of its approximately 1,600 homes built or under construction are using less water than anticipated.
