Design Challenge: How might we help the residents of Lehi, Utah conserve more water?
In order to better understand the problem, we met with Lehi City administrators. They described past efforts and limitations of future solutions.
We also chose to do survey among Lehi residents to better understand their water usage habits and their knowledge of water conservation.
We relied on solid academic behavioral design research principles in creating our solutions.
Our final design involved two main products:
- Household consultations leading up to a city-wide prize drawing
- Newsletter Water Usage Ad
Using the feedback from Lehi City, we created prototypes of a door hanger, an ad, and a reporting survey. We also created a water conservation implementation guide for them to use in testing and implementation.
