The Client

Wessex Water


Wessex Water supplies approximately 2.8 million customers across the south west of England including Dorset, Somerset, Bristol, most of Wiltshire and parts of Gloucestershire and Hampshire. Wessex Water treats and supplies 280 million litres of water a day to 1.3 million customers.

The Brief

Schools Programme


Wessex Water supplied Aqualogic with data for all secondary schools within the Wessex Water boundary, with a view to identifying schools with a high water use. Once a school was identified a water usage audit was arranged with a full report and recommendations showing costs, savings and payback periods. An Aqualogic engineer then implemented all recommendations installing a range of water efficient products.

Key Aspects

Benchmarking

PCC (Per Capita Consumption) benchmarking was used to compare schools performance against other schools in the area.

Behavioural Change

The project was not just about schools consumption but converting the schools children into ‘water savers’ wherever possible through behavioural change.

Teamwork

Only highly trained and qualified engineers with a passion for water efficiency were used to deliver the project overseen by a locally based Project Manager liaising with the client on a regular basis.

Products

A combination of WC fittings including push taps, flow regulators, urinal controls and shower heads were used to make substantial savings.

Results

The project was extremely successful with both the client and individual schools delighted with the savings achieved.
