The program has achieved the following results:

  • 43% recruitment rate in neighbor-to-neighbor outreach
  • 8 households per team
  • 10 watershed protection actions completed per team member
  • 44% annualized water savings per team
  • 22,000 annualized gallons of water saved per household

A less measurable feature is the social capital built. Program participants met their neighbors and began acting as a community, often for the first time, to build more socially cohesive, safer and healthier neighborhoods. They were transformed from residents to neighbors and from neighbors to engaged citizens.
