Through a combination of rainfall harvesting, aggressive conservation, and water recycling, our buildings and sites can achieve self-sufficiency and reduce or eliminate their reliance on municipal water infrastructure. This lecture examines the core concepts that comprise the Net Zero Water approach to system design – a critical component of the move towards truly sustainable buildings.
- Discover the advantages of the Net Zero Water approach to system design
- Explore the seven stages in the Integrated Water Cycle
- Identify and describe different sources of water for harvesting
- Identify sources of water for reuse that often go unaccounted for in our systems
