Metsec

Water ConsumptionFollowing an ARUP Sustainability review in 2007 it was highlighted that an area to target and reduce our impact on use of natural resources was water use. To this end we implemented a process of installing push taps, sinks with integral plugs and leak monitoring. Push taps were retro-fitted to existing sinks meaning taps could not be left running after use. Sinks with integral plugs were installed as historically plugs would get damaged or go missing. Leak monitoring and the monthly recording of water usage assisted in detecting water leaks and any abnormal usage patterns. We have also decommissioned our cooling tower and replaced it with an air blast cooling system. This has allowed Metsec to reduce water consumption by 60% since 2007.
