White Paper Addresses Aging Water, Sewer Systems

Chicago Faucets has announced the release of a white paper, “Water No More”. The white paper discusses the escalating cost of water businesses will experience due to replacement of the country’s aging water and sewer systems, specifically the thousands of miles of pipes and the tens-of-thousands of treatment plants, storage tanks and water distribution systems in need of repair or replacement, according to a Black and Veatch report. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates the total national cost of updating these systems to be around $384 billion over the next 20 years.

The white paper offers a solution as part of a water conservation plan – replace a building’s older manual faucets with electronic metering faucets with low flow rates and water-saving electronic shut-offs. Advances in technology and manufacturing have brought down list prices for many electronic metering faucets to near the price of comparable manual models.

The white paper presents charts that show the rising costs of water and sewer rates and the end uses of water in office buildings, as well as a chart on potential water savings achievable by replacing manual faucets with electronic metering faucets.
