Saving Water in the Workplace


The first step in determining how to save water in the workplace, is to identify where water is being used. Areas such as toilets and kitchens are the obvious locations, but what about the irrigation system watering the garden or the wash bay or evaporative cooler? Every location that uses water can be a potential place to save water as well.

If your business has equipment that uses water, install some internal water meters on key equipment and read and monitor the water consumed. This can only assist in knowing where your water is being consumed and, in some cases, can identify locations where equipment upgrades or maintenance could be required.
