Liquid Assets: Water Monitoring and Conservation in Multifamily Buildings

03/09/2017 - 10:30 to 12:00
10:30 am to 12:00 pm

We all know we should be saving water in our multifamily buildings, but how? Most tenants pay their own electric bills so switching off lights makes economic sense, but since water is usually included in rent, thousands of running toilets and leaky faucets go mostly neglected every day. This leakage (economic pun intended) can significantly impact building operating costs. The good news is that the solutions are relatively cheap to implement, and new monitoring techniques can allow building operators to quickly identify problems before they show themselves on a monthly or quarterly water utility statement. In this session's multilevel look at water monitoring and conservation in multifamily buildings, we'll hear from four speakers whose varied perspectives run the gamut from regional water utility to startup water meter developer to building owners and managers.
