Event Description

The Residential End Uses of Water Study, published in 2016 by the Water Research Foundation details how water is used in single-family homes across North America. This course will review American water demand trends with a particular focus on the residential sector and will identify areas where future demand reductions will be achieved. The course will focus on consumption data and how demand changes have occurred as well as what future potential exists. The demand trends of toilets, clothes washers, showers, faucets, and irrigation systems will be presented along with examples from across the US. The course will be taught by Peter Mayer, P.E. Principal of WaterDM and co-principal investigator of the Water Research Foundation residential end use studies.
