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.
