While saving water outdoors may be easy to spot (e.g., water running down the sidewalk), indoor savings are often less obvious. While less obvious, with the right knowledge and tools, indoor water savings can be easy to identify (and just as valuable to your pocketbook).
Join industry experts Paul Lander, Ph.D., ASLA, LEED AP and Troy Aichele, LEED AP (O+M) to explore the key elements, variables, and the importance of indoor water conservation and savings within your conservation plan, as well as how to develop, implement, monitor, and maintain an effective indoor water savings plan. Additionally, learn the step-by-step process to perform a water audit, calculate your payback period, and select replacement fixtures, as well as how to develop and manage your maintenance plan to maximize your ROI short and long-term.
Paul Lander will open our discussion with an exploration of the concepts behind indoor water conservation, the difference between appropriate water use and water waste, and the connection between the water savings and energy savings. Building on this foundation, Troy Aichele will lead you through his personalized step-by-step process of how to perform a water audit, including contacting the customer, auditing a facility or residence, the tools required, the associated rebates, and most importantly how to calculate your payback period. We will also discuss how to pick appropriate replacement fixtures and appliances to maximize ROI, and gain an understanding of Watersense labels—where they come from, how they are obtained and what they mean to you. Finally, as monitoring and maintenance are essential to the success of upgrades, Paul Lander will discuss how to develop, implement, monitor, and maintain your new indoor water conservation plan so that your water efficiency efforts are maximized and calculated payback periods achieved (or surpassed!).
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Why indoor water conservation is important, and what elements and variables are involved (e.g. water, waste, energy)
- How to conduct your own indoor water audit and calculate water efficiency improvement paybacks
- About Watersense labels and what they mean on plumbing fixtures and appliances
- How to develop, implement, monitor and maintain an indoor water conservation plan
Water Conservation Master Class Series
This Improving Indoor Water Efficiency, Planning & Implementation webcast is the second module in our 4-session Water Conservation Master Series. Currently, we are offering the full Master Class Series at a discounted rate.
* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15–20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time.
* Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
