Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine the constraints and mis-understandings associated with residential water conservation and to analyze the actual savings in dollars, water and energy that are achieved by the selection and installation of water conserving facilities. Residential water conservation programs have only been implemented during crisis or emergency situations. However, the recent awareness on the part of the American public, primarily due to the deterioration of energy resources, has focused greater attention on the interrelationships between water and energy. Research is undertaken to determine the potential constraints to a residential water conservation program and the reasons for conserving water. An analysis of various water conserving facilities is developed and applied to a residential area with an estimate of savings in dollars, water and energy. Additional impacts are reviewed as a result of this residential conservation program. Author
