Water audits provide a way to inventory all water uses in your facility and identify ways to increase water use efficiency. The results can help you prioritize steps to implement cost-effective water-saving measures. Water auditing is a method of quantifying water flows and quality in simple or complex systems, with a view to reducing water usage and often saving money on otherwise unnecessary water use. There is an increasing awareness around the globe of the centrality of water to our lives. This awareness crosses political and social boundaries. In many places people have difficult access to drinking water. Often it is polluted. Water auditing is a mechanism for conserving water, which will grow in significance in the future as demand for water increases.
HOW DOES IT HELP?
- A water audit can help save money by reducing water bills
- Water conservation helps our cities – Cities are stressed for water resources.
- A water audit will help reduce wastage and unnecessary use.
- It makes the students more aware and responsible.
WATER AUDIT SCOPE OF WORK
The other objective is to maintain awareness an optimum utilization of water resources.
- To make the assessment of source of water like tube wells & Municipal Supply.
- To study the yield of Tube Wells by raising the pumps & making them operate at higher level to reduce the hardness of water to develop the Tube Wells to get more yield.
- To study the Water Distribution System such as Hydronumetic system & Water Treatment System.
- Analysis of source of raw water and treated water supplies.
- To Design a Tertiary treatment Plant for recycling the STP water for Gardening and to achieve Zero Discharge Status.
- Checking of water of AC Plant, Drinking water and water used in toilets & other relevant
- Performance Assessment of all major water pumps i.e. power consumption vs. flow delivered, estimation of pump efficiency etc.
- Review of water pumping storage and distribution systems.
- Analysis of quantity of water utilization both through metered and unmetered supplies.
- Analysis and measurement of major areas of water consumption.
- Study of Inlet and Outlet water, production and utilization, suggesting water quality and technical improvement.
- Identity and quantify the leakages water and calculation of their losses.
- Understand how the water is being discharged and how can it will be treated and then utilize for variance application.
- Rain water harvesting well study and enhancing their capacity of the same if required.
- Performance Assessment of RO Plant, STP and ETP Plants.
