The second course in the Integrated Water Management training series. Achieving net-zero water uses the concepts of the using and reusing of water multiple times on site and to provide, to the greatest degree possible, a closed-loop of water. There are seven steps associated with this integrated water cycle. While this concept may not be achievable in certain projects, incorporation of its principles can lead to reduction of domestic water and sewer dependency. This course focuses on a number of case studies from different regions and explores in detail the design, installation, maintenance, policy and economic realities of these net zero water systems.

Learning Objectives:

Illustrate best practices for the design and implementation of integrated water management systems, using a series of case studies.

  • Describe the performance characteristics of building- and site-integrated water management systems.
  • Discuss alternative strategies for the design of system components.
  • Understand the challenges associated with maintenance of these systems.
