Introduction to Integrated Water Management for Buildings and Sites
Date: 4/25/2014 - 4/26/2014
Type: Events
Location(s):
Oregon
Description:

Developed jointly by GRHC and American Society of Irrigation Consultants (ASIC) committee members, this course provides technical and economic information on the design and performance of a fully integrated site and building water management system based on the “Net Zero Water” concept.

This approach promises to significantly reduce the consumption of potable water in buildings, reduce discharge to municipal waste water systems, and save on municipal energy by reducing the amount of potable water treated at municipal facilities. The recognition of the connection between water management and energy conservation is emerging as a new opportunity in integrated management systems.

Key concepts and terminology are illustrated by case studies and demonstration projects which identify issues and opportunities associated with:

  • Costs and benefits
  • Design and engineering practices
  • Installation and maintenance requirements
  • Efficiency and performance of a fully functional integrated site and building water management system based on the “Net Zero Water” concept.
