In May, we hosted a public webinar on the topic: Efficient water use in the non-residential sector. This webinar is part of our new Webinar Series.

Our CEO Chris Philpot moderated the session, and we were joined by guest speakers and industry experts:

  • Adam Jones, Principal Engineer, BMT
  • Tracey Carr, Coordinator Governance and Executive Service and Louise Cadell, Water Sustainability Officer, Tamworth Regional Council
  • Damien Postma, Manager – Demand Delivery, Water Corporation
  • Reid Butler, Principal, REIDenvironmental
  • Steve Askew, Engineer, Hunter Water

Adam Jones from BMT kicked off presentations and shared insights on his topic: What does success look like and how do we measure water savings?. Tracey Carr and Louise Cadell from Tamworth Regional Council presented a Case Study: Water efficiency audit program achieves big savings for Tamworth businesses and Damien Postma presented a Case Study: How to work effectively with business customers - wins and challenges. Reid Butler from REIDenvironmental presented on Smart-metering opportunities and experiences for businesses and Steve Askew from Hunter Water shared his insight and expertise about non-residential benchmarking.

“The non-residential webinar was a great way to share our knowledge and insights from various non-residential programs. It was great to hear about new technology and share our wins and lessons from Hunter Water,” says Steve Askew from Hunter Water.

How does The Water Conservancy work with non-residential businesses?

The Water Conservancy works in partnership with Adam Jones, Principal Engineer at BMT and Reid Butler, Principal at REIDenvironmental on our Smart Water Solutions program. We work together to undertake water audits for the non-residential sector and identify ways for businesses to be more water efficient. Our objective is to work with customers to help non-residential water users make fast, achievable, and large-scale operational water savings.

Our team provide high level investigations and, in some cases, conduct detailed audits. Through Smart Water audits, we can identify opportunities that can achieve significant water savings (often as much as 30-60% of total water use) and a strong return on investment with simple payback periods under 1-2 years. We can also provide training to help upskill council and water utility staff that can be delivered online or in person.
