Wringing water savings for a commercial washer - DHI Case Story

Identifying water-saving scenarios through a comprehensive water audit

Water is a scarce resource in Singapore. To regulate non-domestic water demands, the Singapore government has enforced a water law starting from January 2015 stating that companies that exceed 60,000 m3 per year in water consumption are required to submit their Water Efficiency Management Plans (WEMP) to the Singapore Public Utilities Board (PUB) annually for three consecutive years. The WEMP should include water minimisation plans which would help to reduce water consumption by 10% annually. In preparation of the WEMP submission and to apply for the Water Efficiency Fund (WEF) provided by PUB, Orchid Laundry engaged DHI to carry out a comprehensive water audit in its premises.
