WaterSense® at Work

To help building owners and managers understand and significantly reduce water use in their facilities, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created WaterSense® at Work: Best Management Practices for Commercial and Institutional Facilities.

WaterSense® at Work is a compilation of water-saving tips, techniques, and fixture recommendations for commercial and institutional sectors, including hospitality, food service, healthcare, laboratory, office buildings, and educational facilities. The easy-to-use guide includes in-depth sections covering:

  • Water management planning
  • Water use monitoring and education
  • Sanitary fixtures and equipment
  • Commercial kitchen equipment
  • Outdoor water use
  • Mechanical systems
  • Laboratory and medical equipment
  • Onsite alternative water sources

The guide provides numerous ideas for helping businesses and organizations of all sizes save water, energy, and operational costs by incorporating water-efficient products and practices in their facilities. Case studies from each of the above-listed areas also demonstrate how facilities have incorporated best management practices to reduce water use.

Visit the WaterSense® website to access the guide, sector-specific fact sheets, case studies, and other useful resources. Look for more tools and resources applicable to commercial and institutional facilities in the coming months.
