  • Chula Vista relied on our help to create a water stewardship plan that would sustainably meet its water demand in a drought-prone climate.
  • Using Lean principles, we worked with internal stakeholders, local water authorities, and the community to develop a comprehensive picture of all prior efforts, and leveraged the best of those efforts alongside new ideas.
  • We defined five key themes that addressed the city’s water conservation, reuse, and stewardship vision, and then narrowed hundreds of stakeholder and community contributions to 26 actionable items that fit within those themes.
