Water Efficiency

Water Efficiency for Athletic Facilities, 
Schools and Colleges 
Massachusetts Water Resources Authority

The MWRA's Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) Water Management program was developed to help businesses, industries and institutions improve their water efficiency. Since its formation in 1989, the ICI program has helped various facilities in the MWRA service area reduce their water consumption, thereby reducing operational costs.

The ICI program has produced surveys and water efficiency plans for almost a dozen schools and athletic facilities, including high schools, vocational-technical schools, colleges, universities and YMCAs.

The facilities studied had annual water usage ranging from 2 million gallons to over 17 million gallons. Each facility studied had at least one area where Water Efficiency Measures (WEMs) could be employed to achieve significant water reductions
