Shaping The Future of Water

Shaping The Future of Water

to take this course

In this one-hour presentation, we identify strategies to improve water efficiency in buildings by specifying sustainable plumbing products. We explore why design professionals should specify sustainable faucets, showers, toilets, and tubs to reduce environmental impacts. We review water efficiency standards and certifications for Watersense, LEED v4.1, CalGreen, and CEC and how they impact building occupants. Finally, we review case studies where sustainable plumbing products contributed to water efficiency, the well-being of building occupants, and improving the built environment.
