Water Efficiency
Water Use Management Plan

What Is It?

A water use management plan provides clear information about how a facility uses its water, from the time it is piped into the facility through disposal. One or several employees usually oversee the creation of the plan, which has many components: data regarding how much water the facility is using for each activity, what it’s costing the workplace, obvious sources of waste such as dripping taps, the evaluation of water efficiency measures, and a subsequent implementation plan.


Creating a water management program will help foster an understanding of current water consumption patterns and their costs. This benchmark will set long and short-term water conservation goals and establish which strategies to pursue in each facility.
