Dalplex Water Audit
MetadataShow full item record
Based on the premise that the Dalplex is wasting water, our group set out to identity problems with the plumbing system located within the facility. We focused on four main fixtures for this study; toilets, urinals, faucets and shower heads. After direct observations of fixtures backed our original hypothesis of water waste we researched alternative fixtures that will reduce water usage. An installation of these fixtures would save Dalhousie University thousands of dollars and millions of litres of fresh water each year. The methodology behind our research will be covered in this report – this includes descriptions of the assessment, interview, research and cost analysis process, and the overall reliability of the report. Cost analysis figures for each type of fixture will be listed, along with case studies that validate our research. A list of alternatives will be provided, as well as future recommendations for not only the facility, but other buildings across campus.
