Water Conservation Strategies
The project intends to realign how people use water and to redefine “waste” in the built environment so that water is respected as a precious resource. Watershed incorporates sustainable water strategies in three important ways:
- Capturing > 50% of on-site rainwater and recycling it for non-potable uses in the building.
- Reducing potable water use within the building by 75% compared to a standard building.
- Capturing and cleaning ~ 400,000 gallons of stormwater (see before and after below).
