AWE / GLPF Low-interest Loan Survey
Alliance for Water Efficiency Low-Interest Loan Survey
The Chicago-based Alliance for Water Efficiency, with funding from the Great Lakes Protection Fund, has been examining industrial water conservation opportunities within the Great Lakes watershed. Our work has uncovered two significant findings:
A. Significant water conservation opportunities exist within the multitude of Great Lakes industries.
B. The effects of those opportunities, scaled across the full region, would have significant financial value for the industries and long-term benefits for the water supplies, water quality, infrastructure construction and maintenance, and the overall environment.
A company’s ability to obtain funding represents one of the potential obstacles we have encountered. In response, we are developing a strategy for a revolving fund program designed to help finance the implementation of conservation measures.
As we move forward, we are interested in your thoughts on the need for and potential of this funding mechanism. Thank you for taking a few minutes to answer these survey questions:
