Still Using City Water (Drinking Water!) in Your Cooling Tower?

Cooling systems are typically the greatest user of water in commercial and industrial buildings?

What if we monitored it so we could optimize it – potentially saving hundreds and thousands of gallons of water?

What if we reused that water – so ZERO city water (DRINKING WATER!) was being used at all?

Water Savings. Energy Savings. Cost Savings.

IT’S ALL POSSIBLE.

When the well is dry, we learn the worth

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU

“Younglings younglings, gather round,” said Yoda.

Just because water is priced too cheap in most of the world, doesn’t mean we can afford to waste it.

  • Freshwater withdrawals have tripled over the last 50 years.
  • The world’s population is growing by roughly 80 million people each year.
  • Changes in lifestyles and eating habits are requiring more water consumption per capita. Food demands will increase 50% by 2030.
  • Energy demand is also accelerating, with corresponding implications for water demand. Energy demands will increase by 60% by 2030.
  • Pollution knows no borders! 90% of wastewater in developing countries is untreated.

Wastewater treatment and water reuse are critical!

This May Fourth, remember to be mindful of our most precious resource and how quickly it’s running out.

“Always pass on what you have learned,” so says the Grand Master of the Jedi Order.

Did You Know?

Salt water makes up 97.5% of all of Earth’s water. Of the 2.5% of fresh water left on this planet, only 0.008% is readily available for potable use.

4.8 billion people – more than half the world’s population – and approximately half of global grain production will be at risk due to water stress by 2050 if status quo continues.

Get serious about sustainability. You don’t have to put the environment at risk. Optimize your water use and quality.

Have you signed the petition?

Many of you have already seen—and perhaps signed—the rainwater harvesting petition that’s been widely circulating, but for those who might not be aware of it, we would like to call your attention to it once more before next week’s deadline.

The American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association launched a petition last month to encourage and foster support for rainwater harvesting. ARCSA is hoping to collect 100,000 signatures (and as of this post, they are almost there) by December 16.

In times of drought it’s a no-brainer for the public to agree that rainwater harvesting is a good idea. This article includes some interesting statistics about how recent storms in the Los Angeles area have replenished the aquifer, but the ARCSA’s goal is to stimulate an industry to more actively capture rainwater—and to create jobs in the process. 

The full text of the petition appears below. You can find and sign the petition by clicking on this link: http://wh.gov/ia5tT.

We petition the White House to stimulate the emerging rainwater-harvesting industry through legislation or executive order, creating new jobs in design, installation, education, R&D, sales, plumbing, landscaping, roofing, monitoring and maintenance, which could propel the U.S. to international leadership, with compounding fiscal benefits.

The many justifications include:

  • Worldwide demand for clean water exceeds supply.
  • Rainwater can help fill the gap and reduce stormwater pollution.
  • One inch of rain is over 600 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. of roof.
  • Rainwater is a valuable resource that reduces demand on water infrastructure.
  • A new national standard, ARCSA/ASPE/ANSI 63-2013 details safe design & installation.
  • Treated rainwater can easily surpass EPA standards.

Will you make your voice heard?
