LOSSES REDUCED BY
KILO-LITRES WATER SAVED
To monitor consumption and reduce demand by implementing efficiency measures
Aligned with our first step, we installed Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) devices to monitor consumption and flow profiles. We did a lot of work to reduce consumption by increasing efficiencies (tap aerators, toilet flushing mechanisms) and eliminating waste (leaks, over irrigation, faulty mechanisms). We then designed and installed backup systems and rainwater harvesting with filtration.
The project has been running since June 2017, and over the 36 months, across 16 facilities, we managed to save close to 170 million litres of water. 170,463,770 liters to be exact! This had a total monetary value of approximately R7 million.
