CHARLOTTE -- A conservation initiative is aimed at cutting water use in uptown Charlotte office buildings by up to 20 percent over the next five years.
City officials and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities will work with experts from private companies to design and install systems for the Smart Water Now program. Organizers want to make uptown workers and building managers more aware of their water use and change habits.
The program is expected to be in place this fall. A similar energy saving campaign is in its second year.
