NEW – Social norms based customer engagement on water efficiency

The Water Insights initiative was delivered as part of a wider water efficiency program, which included home water audits, water efficient retrofits, and rebates for low flush toilets and water efficient landscapes. The programs were initiated in order to achieve the 20% reduction in water use by 2020, as mandated by the California Water Conservation [...]

Water Use Reduction Strategy in the Food Sector

The project involved the implementation of a water use reduction strategy, which included actions such as an active monitoring of water use, engineering interventions to enable condensate reuse, retrofitting low flow plumbing fixtures, and active employee participation. At a cost of US$145,000, fully financed by Nestle, the strategy was successful in reducing the plant’s water [...]

Regional Water Conservation Program

?In the year 2000 the SWP, covering a service area of 1.3 million people, implemented a program promoting a per capita reduction in water use by 1% per year for ten years. Implementation of the program consisted of various measures including but not limited to: low flush and low flow home utilities, and rebates to [...]

Wastewater Reclamation and Reuse Network

?In the late 1990s Singapore initiated a program to become increasingly self-sufficient in its water supply. One component of the program, called NEWater, involves the collection of treated wastewater flows that would have otherwise been discharged to the ocean. Between 2002 and 2010 the program further established four NEWater plants with a capacity of 500,000m3/day. [...]

Water Loss Management Program

The aim of the WLMP was to support smaller Local Water Utilities (LWUs) in their efforts to reduce leakage from their drinking water distribution systems. The batching of projects under WLMP also allowed eligibility with federal government funding criteria. Specialist knowledge and equipment were provided to LWUs in order to help identify, develop and implement [...]

Water Demand Management Strategy

Key to managing demand has been facilitating behavioral change in water use and consumption. The campaign to manage demand in Singapore is known as the “3P approach” and encourages everyone (People, Public, Private) to take ownership of water resource management. Also central to this approach is the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme, which [...]

Water Demand Management Scheme

The action taken took the form of a comprehensive water demand management program with six goals in mind: reduce the high percentage of non-revenue water, reduce high static water pressures, reduce average daily demand, increase total revenue, provide constant and efficient service to consumers, and conserve water that was becoming increasingly scarce. At a project [...]

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.
