About the Seminar

This program is designed to provide you with the basic information and facts — first of all, on why effective water reduction and management is now more important than ever — and then on what fundamental steps are needed to effectively plan and implement a strategic water reduction program for your facility or organization. Topic examined will include:

  • An overview of water scarcity in the world, and how specific areas are determined to have a water scarcity problem or not.
  • Definitions and concepts important to effective water reduction and management.
  • Developing a water risk analysis for your location and facility.
  • Developing a strategic water reduction program and plan, both reducing your water consumption footprint, and saving dollars.
  • The best approaches to changing behaviors in order to increase participation in water conservation.
  • How to use critical success factors (CSFs) to improve the performance and sustainability of your water consumption reduction program.
  • What to include in your water emergency plan.

Your instructor will provide you with important tips on how set priorities and achievable goals for your program, as well as how to improve team performance and overall participation as critical factors in your program's success.
