The 40-Gallon Challenge Program

This project is designed to encourage people to take The 40 Gallon Challenge by completing a home water audit. The self-audit checklist on the Challenge card provides an estimate of water savings resulting from implementation of water-saving practices. The program was initiated in Georgia, and currently is implemented in several states with the support of the Southern Regional Water Program.
