Case Study: Epic Cleantec Water Reuse Systems

Aug 10, 2:15 - 2:45 pm ET

Communities across the country are facing rising water and sewer rates and changing weather patterns that straining the already ailing water infrastructure – from water scarcity and extreme drought to storms and flooding across the U.S. To combat these water supply challenges, cities across the nation are looking to implement new water reuse programs that can help disproportionally impacted communities.

Epic’s emergence as a national leader in onsite water reuse with San Francisco’s first permitted and city-approved onsite greywater reuse operation in Related California's newly opened Fifteen Fifty, a 40-story residential high-rise building will be used as a learning tool in this program. This project is on track to reuse up to 2.5 million gallons of water annually, a significant reduction of the building’s water footprint and an important statement as California grapples with a prolonged period of drought.

Learning Objectives
- List opportunities within the LEED v4/4.1 Water Credit water reuse systems can support in both BD+C and ID+C projects
- Discuss how onsite water reuse technology provides a critical solution to the water scarcity crisis and works in concert with other water reclamation measures to support climate and sustainability goals
- Discuss how water reuse systems can earn the Integrated Project Water Reuse Strategy credit in LEED v4/4.1 BD+C
- Recognize the operational differences between water reuse systems designed for greywater and blackwater reuse, and between systems designed for water only and those that implement full resource recovery
