10882 Water efficient landscape ordinance (AB 325): a statewide implementation review. A report submitted to the California Urban Water Agencies. A. Bamezai, R. Perry, C. Pryor, Western Polilcy Research. 2001 The survey of 140 cities and 11 counties indicated an inconsistency in standards, implementation and post-construction follow-up. Close to 90 percent of new development between 1992 and 1999 took place in agencies that had adopted a water efficient landscape ordinance. There was a general consensus that since the Act was implemented, landscape designs have been improved using drought tolerant plants and better quality and more efficient irrigation systems. Weaknesses were lack of follow-up after construction is completed and disregard of irrigation and maintenance schedules resulting in over-irrigation. They identified ‘maintenance’ as the weakest link in the design/installation/maintenance scenario. Many landscape contractors, developers and the general public remain unaware of local ordinances. The report recommends the identification of a position in planning agencies to conduct follow up inspections and audits; education and training for contractors, developers and water agency staff; and improvements in the ordinances in structure and coverage. 1 04.02.01.01.01 - .04

10816 Toilet Flapper Study - December 2004 Koeller & Company 2004 This study and report are an outgrowth of concerns that have developed over the past 10 years regarding the vulnerability of toilet flush valve seals (commonly termed flappers) to normal aging, to possible degradation caused by consumers' use of in-tank bowl cleaning tablets, and to tampering and replacement. It is the belief of many water conservation practitioners that these factors are resulting in seal failure, leakage, and excessive flush volumes in 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) toilets. These, then, could result in a serious decline or "decay" in the water-efficiency of the toilet fixture, thereby negating the water savings that had been predicted by the water utilities subsidizing toilet replacements. This study is intended to supplement previous work in this area, answer questions about the frequency of seal failure and flush volumes of aging toilets, and provide a basis for further quantification of water losses (if any) resulting from seal failure. 2 05.03.01.01.01 - .02

10834 The Residential Runoff Reduction Study, Jul. 2004 Municipal Water District of Orange County and Irvine Ranch Water District 2004 Based upon the findings of an earlier study, Irvine Ranch Water District and Municipal Water District of Orange County partnered on new research, the Residential Runoff Reduction (R3). This study had four primary purposes: 1) To test the use of weather-based irrigation technology, also known as ET controllers, to manage irrigation water for residential homes and large landscape areas; 2) To evaluate the effectiveness of a targeted education program on residential homeowners; 3) To determine the correlation between proper water application in landscape irrigation and the quantity and quality of urban dry-season runoff; and 4) To gauge the acceptance of water management via the controller technology. Weather-based controllers resulted in water savings of 41 gallons per day in typical residential settings and 545 gpd for larger dedicated landscape irrigation accounts. Reduction in runoff was 50% caomparing pre-intervention and posst-intervention periods and 71% in comparison to the control group. In terms of cost effectiveness, initial targets for program expansion should be large landscapes such as parks and street medians. 1 04.04.03.17.01 - .02

10900 Landscape water use in a desert metropolis. Research vignette #1, Apr. 2003 C. Martin, Arizona State University 2003 Survey of landscape practices and preferences of 1800 residential homeowners in Phoenix, AZ. An 'oasis' landscape (a mix of mesic and xeric) was preferred over high water using (mesic) or desert (xeric) designs. Heavy irrigation and frequent pruning raise water use. Homeowners often over water plants. Plant spacing, vegetative cover, plant size and growth rate can be more important determinates in water use than plant selection. 1

10920 Landscapers suffer as drought lingers throughout the West, strategies for a water crunch, May 2004 S. Shore, Associated Press 2004 About 2,000 landscaping jobs in Colorado were lost between 2002 and 2003 because of continuing drought conditions, in the $1.67 billion industry including landscaping, nurseries, garden centers and commercial florists with revenues dropping $60 million. To increase business, some landscapers have added artificial turf to their businesses as well as designing landscapes with drought-tolerant plants and emphasizing more efficient irrigation systems. Sales of container gardens and drought tolerant plants soared. S. Nevada Water Authority banned sod planting in new residential front yards, limited grass to 50% in back yards, and offered rebates of $1 per square foot for turf removal. 1
10922 A comparison of municipal forest benefits and costs in Modesto and Santa Monica. Urban Forestry and Urban Greening. 2002 Presents a comparison of the structure, function and value of trees in Modesto and Santa Monica. Net annual benefits: $2.2 million and $805,732 and benefit-cost ratios 1.85:1 and 1.52:1. Aesthetics and increased property values accounted for 50% and 80% of total annual benefits. Environmental benefits related to energy savings, storm water runoff reduction and air quality improvements were quite evenly distributed among the remainder. Expenditures for pruning accounted for about 50% of annual costs. 1
10923 Trees in Glendale are paying huge dividends, Feb. 2005 P. Peper, J. Geiger, Center for Urban Forest Research, USDA Forest Service news release. 2005 Study by CUFR found that Glendale residents receive $2.41 in environmental benefits for every dollar the city invests in the care and maintenance of city trees. Healthy trees improve air quality, lower summer temperatures, decrease the need for air conditioning, and reduce stormwater runoff. They also contribute toward increased real estate values, provide neighborhoods with a unique identity, increase business income, increase community attractiveness, reduce stress, reduce crime and provide recreational opportunities. Glendale's trees intercept 1 million gallons of rain per year, reducing runoff. Mature mesquites intercept about 1,600 gallons annually, but only consume about 1,100 gallons through irrigation. Because the price of irrigation water is one-quarter the cost of controlling stormwater per gallon, the annual watershed benefit is over four times greater than the irrigaiton cost, $7.70 vs $1.85 per tree. 1
