Guidelines for Estimating Unmetered Industrial Water Use

COURSE NO: M02-059
Guidelines for Estimating Unmetered Industrial Water Use
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a systematic approach to estimate industrial water use in evaporative cooling systems, steam boiler systems, and facility wash applications.


Executive Order 13514 requires Federal agencies to develop a baseline for industrial, landscaping, and agricultural water use. Measuring actual water use through flow meters is the best method to develop this baseline. However, there are instances where Federal sites do not meter these applications, so developing a baseline will be problematic.


The intent of this course is to assist Federal agencies in the baseline development by providing a methodology to calculate unmetered sources of industrial water use utilizing engineering estimates.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and industrial engineers, Federal agencies and professionals who are interested in learning how to estimate industrial water use in various engineering applications.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Gaining an overview of water provisions that require Federal agencies to improve water use efficiency and management
  • Learning how to estimate industrial water use in evaporative cooling systems, steam boiler systems, and facility wash applications
  • Familiarizing with key terms, standard calculations, industry norms, and general rules of thumb pertaining to water usage
  • Understanding the technical explanation for the methodology used to estimate industrial water usage
