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.

Up & Running: Ethicon Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility Rainwater System

Aquanomix designed a custom system for Johnson & Johnson Company’s Ethicon Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility that reuses rainwater for cooling tower make-up water and irrigation.

The Ethicon facility in Cornelia, Georgia manufactures surgical and medical instruments.

The new facility was constructed on the same site of Ethicon’s sister company, Noramco Inc. Noramco, which has operated the Athens facility since 1981, manufactures pharmaceutical ingredients used in medications and medical devices. Both companies are subsidiaries of Johnson & Johnson.

Aquanomix System Installed at Yale School of Medicine

The Aquanomix Rainwater Harvesting System is up and running at the Yale University School of Medicine Amistad Research Lab in New Haven, Connecticut.

The Amistad facility, at 10 Amistad Street, distinguished itself with its whole sustainable approach, using collected rainwater and air handler condensate drainage for toilet flushing in a system designed by Aquanomix. Water collected on the roof of the research building is used in ultra-low-flow lavatories and dual-flush toilets.

This laboratory/vivarium interior renovation included biomedical research space, tissue culture rooms, cold rooms, specials labs and a vivarium to house rodents. Stem cell research will be performed in this building. This project has received a LEED® Gold certification.

Thanks to our fantastic reps at Engineered Product Sales for helping to make this happen.
