Rainwater is hot news at the moment; too much of it, too little of it, how to manage it. How do you deal with and make the most of nature’s most abundant, free resource ? Rainwater can bring life to those living in areas of water stress, but devastation in the form of flooding. However, with expert management through rainwater harvesting and attenuation one of our most powerful resources can be harnessed, controlled and re-used, removing our water woes!
So how can the sustainable technology of rainwater harvesting be beneficial to the public sector?
Save Water – Reduce your mains water usage by up to 75%
The majority of our clients enjoy savings on their mains water bills of between 50-75% and one client has used over 930,000 Litre’s of rainwater during the last 5 months alone. Rainwater harvesting can deliver significant returns on investment, especially with larger buildings with a high water demand, which may achieve a payback of between 2-5 years. Many public sector buildings have roof areas which, conveniently, can provide the right amount for their water demand.
We are entering an age where wastage is frowned upon and the public sector has the opportunity to lead the way in a sustainable water management approach, by utilizing rainwater harvesting in schools, offices, transport depots and leisure facilities across the UK.
Save Money – Save your budget!
Rainwater harvesting systems can have a significant impact in reducing the running costs of a building; far exceeding other water saving products. With budgets under strain the investment in rainwater harvesting is not often as significant as many think and with rising water bills, reducing public sector spending on utilities is being welcomed by local authorities in all areas of the country.
Save the Environment – Sustainable water technology
The Environment Agency have predicted that we will soon, no longer have enough available water in the UK to supply demand. It makes perfect sense to collect rainwater locally from our roof areas and filter this on site, rather than wastefully sending it straight to drain to be transported and treated to drinking water quality, before being redistributed in the mains water supply. Over 50% of our daily water use does not need to be treated to drinking water quality. For companies who wish to demonstrate a serious commitment to their sustainability agenda, rainwater harvesting is a must have technology.
Control Flooding as well as saving money
It would be highly unusual for any new building to not have a requirement for some sort of stormwater retention on site. With Stormsaver’s new technologies we can provide a way to attenuate water on site and at the same time re-use it in the building, saving you money and flooding problems, and assisting with planning conditions.
