How To Improve Your Business’s Water Management

A hugely important part of running a successful business that puts environmental issues at the very heart of all its operations is focusing on water management and there are all sorts of ways in which you can go about reducing your water footprint and making your company even more eco-friendly than it already is.

You may not be fully aware of the issues surrounding water stress and scarcity, but it is a growing problem, with demand expected to outstrip supply even here in the UK in as little as ten years’ time. So, now is the perfect opportunity for you to review how your business uses and consumes water, so you can become more resilient in this regard in the future.

One of the most effective ways of saving water – and money – is to change your business water supplier, as this can help you reduce your water bills and claim back any money on previous billing mistakes, as well as assisting with early water leak detection, allowing you to repair problems quickly and waste far less water.

The first step towards saving water is to have a site audit carried out and analysis of your water bills carried out, so a document can be prepared advising you as to the various improvements that could be made where water usage is concerned.

You need to know how much water your company uses on an annual basis so you know whether you should be considered a small or large business by water suppliers. Typically, if you use 6,000 m/3 or less of water each year, you’ll be viewed as a small business. Knowing this will help you work out what sort of rates you should be getting.

Given the looming water crisis, you should also have an emergency plan in place to help you in the event that you suddenly find yourself without water. This plan should include contingencies to help you minimise the amount of time your company spends without water, something that could happen a lot sooner than you may think.
