The goal of effective water management is to reduce water consumption without compromising the performance of equipment and fixtures. Using water more efficiently is a green strategy for several reasons: it reduces pressure on sometimes-limited water resources, reduces the amount of energy and chemicals used for water and wastewater treatment, and, to the extent that the use of hot water is reduced, increases energy savings-with associated environmental benefits.

In this course the student will learn a wide variety of sustainable concepts and practical ideas related to water and wastewater systems, including water management concepts, plumbing design concepts, fixture selection considerations and more sophisticated concepts such as graywater collection and rainwater harvesting.
