The Coconino County Sustainable Building Program recently held its annual water conservation and sustainable building tour to educate the public on the benefits of building sustainably.
The tour was slated to feature homeowners, builders and installers who gave information on the economic and environmental benefits to sustainable building practices, according to a press release.
Six buildings demonstrated water conservation methods such as rainwater harvesting for irrigation and potable use, greywater reuse, low-flow fixtures and xeriscaping. The tour also features a tiny house on wheels on display.
The tour is part of the Flagstaff Festival of Science and the American Solar Energy Society’s National tour. The event was presented by the Coconino Sustainable Building Program, the city of Flagstaff Sustainability and Water Conservation Programs, Willow Bend Environmental Education Center and the Coconino Plateau Watershed Partnership.
