Energy and resource management are closely intertwined – a geothermal heating and cooling system can reduce water usage by 70% compared to a traditional HVAC system for example. Using specialist partners, we can include funded recycled water systems as part of our overall eco-district solutions.
According to the US Dept. of the Interior, the average US citizen uses 80-100 gallons of water per day. EPA estimates show over 1 trillion gallons a year of water is wasted through leaks. Where extreme weather events are causing more floods and draughts, water management is ever-more vital.
A District Recycled Water project from us might incorporate the following areas of work:
• Establishing water demands and capacity for a central plant and proposing distribution system routing, pumping station requirements, and building interconnections
• Calculating economics of system including electricity, maintenance, and operations and reviewing options to monetize recycled water production
• Confirming regulatory requirements to build, own, and operate the central plant
• Reviewing storm water requirements and mitigation options including incorporation of natural/landscaped systems
