To give every client absolute certainty about the value we will deliver, WSS conducts a simple, but thorough audit tailored to meet our clients industry specific requirements and water saving goals. After effectively identifying where and how water is being used, our technical team determines what strategies and solutions will yield the highest return on investment. Next we implement the appropriate water projects, investigate any available funding options and design an ongoing maintenance and service plan to ensure continued savings and optimum water usage.
A water conservation program starts with a facility walkthrough to determine Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for all water use systems. You’ll receive a concise summary to indicate: key water and cost variables, applicable incentive and rebate programs, and KPIs for all systems that deserve to be analyzed further in a more comprehensive water audit. The take away:
WSS uses the audit to develop a practical water conservation plan. We analyze inefficiencies and focus on systems that have the biggest impact and the quickest payback. The WSS audit report identifies the systems that use the most water and those with the greatest potential savings, along with implementation costs, pay back periods and other financial metrics.
