Project Goals

The Republican River Water Conservation District (RRWCD) was battling with an old website that had been hacked, rendering it nearly unusable and inaccessible.

They wanted to create a new site for their governmental and community stakeholders that would be easy to navigate and place important information at their fingertips.

Key Requirements

Public File Management

To allow site visitors to access records without having to submit a request to the office.

Private File Management

For sharing files within office personnel and its geographically dispersed Board of Directors.

Board Member Management

Web-based tools to manage all things related to the Board of Directors

Event Postings

Post upcoming board meetings, subcommittee meetings, and events in accordance to statutory mandates.

Interactive Map

An interactive way for site visitors to view conservation district zones and boundaries, and view the status of wells.


After battling with their existing website and feeling lost, the RRWCD wanted to learn how to use the tools that would be at their disposal.

Our Solution

We set out to accomplish the RRWCD’s goals and created a custom solution to rise to the occasion.

Ideas Generated

  • ZIntegrated a file management system that automatically syncs with Google Drive
  • ZCreated custom rules so that files automatically publish to the proper locations on the site based on the Drive folder they're added to
  • ZIntegrated board member management tools for sending event RSVP's, tracking board member attendance, and managing private files only accessible to board members
  • ZCreated custom countdown timers in key locations to inform the public of upcoming meetings and events
  • ZDesigned a custom interactive map integrated with Google Earth to display all boundaries, zones and well information
  • ZCreated a custom client dashboard complete with tutorial videos and online support


The RRWCD website is almost entirely client-managed with the exception of hosting, security and maintenance provided by our Website Maintenance Plan.

Because the RRWCD is an organization created through state legislation and receives state funding, we wanted to ensure that the site was accesible to visitors with disabilities so we deployed our Accessibility Widget.

Additionally, we deployed an auto-updating privacy policy to help protect the RRWCD against changing, upcoming and far-reaching legislation in this area.

The RRWCD website was nominated for a design award by CSS Winner in November 2019.

Ever considered what it would cost to replace all of your website's conetnt if your site were ever compromised?

We built this Content Replacement Cost Calculator to help you quickly estimate that cost.

Time is money. No matter if it's a business or a hobby, your content is worth the time you've invested in it. Whether that's designing and implementing everything, writing posts, creating pages or making tweaks to make sure everything is perfect.

We think the minimum amount of time it takes to write a (good) blog post or a page is 30 minutes. If you think about it, we all probably spend a lot more time on content than that. Next time you start writing a blog post, time yourself.

So what's your time really worth? When you do the numbers, you realize what you've invested in your site and what it would take to replace it if you lost it all.

TIP: To figure out your hourly rate, divide your annual salary by 2080 hours, assuming you work a standard 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year.
