WELO Tool Kit & FAQs

Greenwood Park, Hayward

The Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance is a statewide water conservation law for new and renovated landscapes that meet a certain size threshold.  

StopWaste has developed a WELO Tool Kit to help its member agencies implement the ordinance. The Tool Kit consists of model checklists, a water budget/water use calculator, and a permit counter brochure. 

Public agencies can use these materials as is or modify them to meet local requirements.
