Business Water Conservation


Local businesses from hotels to restaurants can be major consumers of water resources and therefore provide substantial water conservation opportunities. Becoming water smart means you will continue to provide the same level of service yet with reduced consumption.

Direct Benefits to Your Business
Target Areas of Highest Consumption and Develop a Plan

Identify the areas of your business where water consumption is highest. For many businesses, washrooms and food service are high demand areas. Next, implement the 3-R's of conservation (Reduce, Repair, Retrofit).

  1. Collect water use information on a simple blueprint of your facility. This might include the kitchen, washrooms, drinking fountains, laundry facilities, lawns and gardens.
  2. Assess the possibility of reducing use. Repair or replace inefficient plumbing and appliances.
  3. Get your staff involved! This will provide support for the project and be good for your public image.
  4. Set water conservation goals.
  5. Revisit goals at designated time periods.
