Water Optimization in the Mining Sector

The site's water withdrawal is restricted to 5,794,000m3. In order to continue expanding its operations without relying on additional water resources, Lomas Bayas investigated opportunities to improve its water efficiency, including replacing the original leach pad sprinkler system with a drip system that significantly reduced the water lost to evaporation. At a project cost of [...]

Reducing Business Risk through Municipal Leakage Reduction

The intervention to improve conditions involves a public-private partnership between several key players (industry, local government and funding agencies), and their attempt to reduce water risks, stress and costs, while increasing water supply to the municipality. This requires a high of buy-in from stakeholders, education and capacity building, repairs and reinvestment of audited ring-fenced savings [...]

Water Authority Conservation Program

The security of supply is dependent upon reducing per capita demand, in particular those arising from landscape irrigation and evaporative cooling which make up 60% of the total demand. Subsequently, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) instituted a number of aggressive water conservation programs from 2000 onwards that included monetary incentives, education and regulatory policies. [...]

Managing Water Towards Zero Discharge

?In 2010 Procter and Gamble (P&G) established the Planta Milenio manufacturing facility in the basin. In order to minimize business risk and environmental impact the plant was designed to minimize the volume of water that would be abstracted from the basin for business operations. The total groundwater abstraction of the site had the potential to [...]
