Commercial Conservation Tips

  • Educate employees, contractors and other users in your facility about the importance of water conservation.
  • Perform a leak survey on your facility. Watch the meter after hours or on weekends to see if there is constant flow, which could indicate a leak. Larger, more complex facilities may need sub-metering. Denver Water offers free commercial water-use audits.
  • Plant low-water-use plants or native grass instead of Kentucky bluegrass.  
  • Replace older toilets and urinals with high-efficiency toilets and urinals. Denver Water offers rebates for both residential and commercial toilet replacement. 
  • Replace old aerators and showerheads with new high-efficiency models. 
  • Regularly inspect, maintain and repair your boiler systems. Install a condensate return line on your boiler if it does not already have one. 
  • Identify all single-pass flows in your facility. These flows often are associated with equipment cooling for pumps, compressors, ice machines, air conditioners and other equipment. Denver Water’s incentive program will pay for a substantial portion of replacement costs. 
  • Regularly inspect, maintain and repair your cooling tower system, which consumes a significant amount of a building’s water. Denver Water has a cooling tower audit program, in which Denver Water will pay an engineering firm to evaluate the condition and operation of your cooling tower. 
  • Review historical water usage for your facility. Analyzing several years of consumption data will often identify undiscovered leaks or other problems. View your water use history.
  • Perform a water audit on your facility to help identify where your water goes.
