Central Systems and Common Areas

Water | Design Principles

Central systems can reduce potable water use by:

  • monitoring and managing cooling tower make-up water; 
  • controlling water bleed in cooling towers; 
  • storing fire sprinkler test water for reuse during the next test; 
  • providing central rainwater or stormwater harvesting; 
  • and providing on-site water recycling.

Potable water use in common areas can be reduced by:

  • reducing the water used for landscaping and gardens; 
  • choosing water-efficient fixtures; 
  • and choosing water-efficient appliances.
