Sustainable Water Management Programs for the Built Environment
Successful water management programs result in healthier building occupants and reduced cost to business and society. Water management programs for the built environment must be comprehensive and sustainable. Water safety in buildings is not practical unless also the operational efficiency of building water systems is well managed. Owners and managers of buildings face increasing water, sewer and energy costs. The demand to be better stewards of water and energy is intensifying. Disease and injury associated with water systems in buildings have harmed millions of people. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are newly afflicted and many thousands of people are killed. The public are generally unaware and their concern is not proportional to the terrible cost. The microbial, chemical and physical hazards to which people are exposed from water in the built environment can be prevented from causing harm by application of scientifically proven principles in hazard analysis and control. Tried and true process management applied to water systems in buildings has been proven to prevent disease and injury. Sustainable Water Management Programs for the Built Environment gives the framework for comprehensive, sustainable water management in the built environment. Case studies of scientifically defensible applications are given throughout the book to illustrate principles and provide examples. The aim of the book is to facilitate implementation of effective, sustainable water management programs for buildings.
