Water Use Efficiency

When public water supply systems approach capacity limits, both public and private sectors have important roles to play.  Waste Reduction Partners engineers provide on-site water efficiency surveys for large water users.

Waste Reduction Partners has helped client organizations save over 225 million gallons per year of water, which equates to an annual savings to clients of over $1.6 million.

Demand-Side Management

As a result of increasing water supply demands, municipalities and water and sewer districts are implementing demand-side management programs to encourage year-round water efficiency.

Water Efficiency Surveys

Waste Reduction Partners can help large water users identify cost-effective water efficiency measures. WRP engineers follow an on-site assessment process outlined below.

Water Efficiency Assessment Process:

  • Confirm that clients have management commitment to assess and implement water efficiency measures.

  • Assemble a multidisciplinary team of assessors to conduct the water-use audit.

  • Collect background site information and records. Complete water efficiency checklist.
  • Conduct on-site water audit. Determine water balance and full cost of water use including water heating, chemical treatment, pumping, on-site pretreatment, and related labor costs.
  • Identify target areas for water efficiency measures in applicable process equipment, heating and cooling, sanitary/domestic, kitchens, outdoor/landscaping, leak repair, and other facility support activities.
  • Prepare a report that gives specific water efficiency recommendations, cost/benefit analysis, technical resources, vendor information, case studies, and educational program suggestions.
  •  Follow up with clients to assure progress and address any implementation obstacles.
