Article: San Francisco requires new developments to reuse water.

In a recent article in Plumbing Engineer, it reads, that San Francisco is becoming the first in the country to require new developments (more than 250,000 square feet) to use on-site water reuse systems for anything that requires non-potable water.

Non-potable water sources include rainwater, reclaimed/recycled water and gray water. While non-potable water is not appropriate for human consumption, it can be used in a myriad of other applications, such as doing laundry, toilet and urinal flushing and cooling tower make-up water.  This means that when it comes to the water used in buildings for things such as cooling towers, irrigation and water closets (toilet flushing), developers can’t use drinking water.

Now San Franciscans must implement on-site treatment systems to make use of rainwater, greywater (which includes water from bathroom sinks, bathtubs, washing machines), blackwater (sewage), stormwater or foundation drainage (groundwater) to meet their needs for non-potable water.

The ordinance also requires smaller buildings of 40,000 square feet or more to do a reuse assessment and in five years the city will need to use non-potable water for all irrigation needs and cleaning of public spaces.

Save the drinking water for drinking and not for flushing.

That’s the goal of new legislation that would require many large new buildings in San Francisco to use gray water — waste water from baths, sinks and other kitchen appliances — for toilet flushing and in their irrigation systems.

Check out how Symphony can support not only California’s Title 24, Part 6 Regulation, but also support the city of San Francisco’s new legislation on gray-water use, in a new one-sheet available for viewing here.

The legislation applies to yet-to-be constructed buildings that are 250,000 square feet and larger and in the city’s “purple-pipe” district.

Did you know: at perhaps the greenest building in the state, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission building is using treated sewage water from about 1,000 employees to flush their toilets and irrigate some of their plants.

Their HQ at 525 Golden Gate consumes 60% less water than similarly sized buildings.

  • One of the first buildings in the nation with onsite treatment of gray and black water
  • An onsite “Living Machine” reclaims and treats all of the building’s wastewater to satisfy 100% of the water demand for the building’s low-flow toilets and urinals
  • The “Living Machine” system treats 5,000 gallons of wastewater per day and reduces per person water consumption from 12 gallons (normal office building) to 5 gallons
  • The building’s 25,000 gallon rainwater harvesting system provides water for irrigation uses around the building.

 

SF Title 24

An Innovative Water + Energy Management Solution in Real-time

It’s never been done before!

But why?

The value in a technology that marries energy and water quality data is powerful. It reveals transparency of operating costs and water quality management at such a granular level. The data supports swift and intelligent decision-making processes, which can save money and improve outcomes in performance.

Brochure: When it’s life or death – should you really take a chance?

Creating the safest hospital requires maximum transparency of your building’s overall HVAC conditions.

Nearly every facility relies heavily on HVAC systems, but hospitals are vastly different from data centers, and have a different set of specific needs.

Without exception, hospitals cannot endure any shutdowns or interruptions. This applies even during planned maintenance, making proper preparation a vital factor to reducing human errors, equipment failure, and downtime.

Across industries, unplanned downtime at healthcare organizations cost an average of $7,900 a minute per incident, up 41 percent from $5,600 per minute in 2010.*

Reliable, efficient, scalable.

Brochure: Industrial + Commercial Water Reuse Systems

Typically, we see the following sources of makeup water in re-use systems:

  • Rainwater
  • Storm water
  • Foundation water
  • Grey water
  • Air Handler Condensate
  • Steam Condensate
  • Filtration backwash water
  • Cooling tower blow down
  • Process water

Typically, we reuse water for the following:

  • Cooling tower make up
  • Boiler make up
  • Toilet flushing
  • Irrigation
