Water Efficiency Management Guide for Mechanical and Other Systems
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief guidance on water use and management in mechanical and other systems such as bathroom suites, landscaping, and irrigation systems.
Tracking water use is an important first step in managing and reducing property water use. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense® program encourages property managers and owners to regularly input their buildings’ water use data in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®, an online tool for tracking energy and water consumption, in order to develop the EPA Water Score for multifamily housing.
The presentation first tackles the basics principles behind each of the mechanical systems. In order to familiarize with the best maintenance and management practices, the presentation then tackles the retrofit and replacement options that help in reducing water use and thereby increasing efficiency. The presentation finally describes calculations and assumptions required for the saving water in the described mechanical applications.
This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to multifamily housing property owners and managers in search for improving their water management, property water use, and subsequently their EPA Water Score. In addition, many of the best practices in this presentation can be used by facility managers for non-residential properties.
This continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the basic principles behind single-pass cooling, cooling towers and boiler/steam systems
- Understanding mechanical system water use and how to improve water management in bathrooms, mechanical, and irrigation systems
- Familiarizing with the maintenance and best management practices
- Knowing the mechanical systems retrofit and replacement options
- Familiarizing with the water savings calculations and assumptions in various mechanical applications
