Water conservation

Water is a valued resource and methods for conservation should play an integral part in service design. Consideration should be given to water saving initiatives such as collecting and storing rainwater, and then using it for purposes such as cleaning and toilet flushing. More importantly, it can be used for watering the grass pitch, as at the Manchester United Ground. Grey water recycling is another method of conserving water, whilst economies can also be made by using water restrictors, cistern control, vacuum toilets and leak detectors. Figure 24.1 shows in schematic form the rainwater reclamation systems of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Stadium. Another example of a stadium in which similar principles have been applied is the City of Manchester Stadium (see the Case studies at the end of this book).
