Water Reuse Goes to School

This article will review the benefits and challenges of implementing water reuse strategies, focused on building heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing systems at the new 217,000-sq-ft Milton Union K-12 School. Public policy changes (codes, etc.) needed to be addressed during a project to more readily integrate these strategies into the building design. A summary of the water savings associated with incorporating these strategies is described herein.

Cool Energy Savings

Commercial applications for harvested rainwater are no longer a rarity in the U.S., though few uses of this heaven-sent water match the AdvancED facility in Alpharetta, Ga., for sustainability and energy efficiency. The U.S. Green Building Council thought so, too — the new global headquarters facility earned LEED Gold status.

Rainwater System

Company Reference: 

Talking Tanks monitors water levels in rainwater tanks, automatically releasing water at a controlled rate if required. The system preempts the release of water from set points chosen by the user according to rain or storm predictions, which are received via a communications link to the Bureau of Meteorology. An advanced algorithm analyzes how successful the capture of rainwater was and adjusts accordingly for future events.
