Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Water and Wastewater

COURSE NO: M02-011
Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Water and Wastewater
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes a wide variety of sustainable concepts and practical ideas related to water and wastewater systems including discussions of water management concepts, plumbing design concepts, fixture selection considerations and more sophisticated concepts such as graywater collection and rainwater harvesting.  Although the reference text discusses Federal Facilities, the principles apply to all building types.  Part VI of this source material focuses on the water and waste water systems within a facility.


Sustainable design involves integration of multiple disciplines.  The goal of effective water management is to reduce water consumption without compromising the performance of equipment and fixtures. Using water more efficiently is a green strategy for several reasons: it reduces pressure on sometimes-limited water resources; it reduces the amount of energy and chemicals used for water and wastewater treatment; and to the extent that the use of hot water is reduced, increases energy savings with associated environmental benefits.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding "green" integrated building design in general and more specifically for federal buildings.
