Evaluating Water Use Efficiency

Examine all aspects of water use in the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) sectors from restroom use to cooling towers, landscape and special processes use. Learn the impact that new codes and rating systems will have on future ICI water users, how to evaluate water and dollar saving potential in their facilities, and possible economic incentives and professional help.


Data from the U.S. Department of Commerce shows that the consumer price indices for water and sewer cost have risen faster than any other utility cost including natural gas, electric power and oil. The cost to construct new utility infrastructure to support water and sewer operations are also increasing rapidly as environmental regulations tighten and construction cost rise. Reducing water use in the industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) sectors offer unique opportunities for utilities to in essence, buy back capacity, and for facility managers and engineers to reduce their utility costs.
