Water and Stormwater SWATeam (In Progress)
- Sustainability Working Advisory Teams (SWATeams)
The Water SWATeam will focus upon conserving potable water and handling storm water in a sustainable manner.
This team focuses on the 2015 iCAP objectives for Chapter 5, including:
5.2 Improve the water efficiency of cooling towers by limiting the amount discharged to sewer to less than 20% of water intake for chiller plant towers, and less than 33% for stand-alone building towers, by FY20
5.5 Through an open solicitation process, implement at least four pilot projects to showcase the potential of water and/or stormwater reuse by FY20, with the objective of implementing a broader program by FY25
