Water Sense for Commercial Properties
Commercial and institutional users of water include a wide range of businesses and organizations. Facilities such as schools, hotels, retail stores, office buildings, and hospitals account for up to 17% of publicly-supplied water use and 18% of energy use in the United States. Reducing water use by adopting and promoting water-efficient products, services, and practices in these facilities can have a great impact in helping to meet challenges faced by communities to meet water demands, save energy, and reduce stress on our natural resources.
