Performance-Based Water Conservation With WERS
- Mike Collignon, Green Builder Coalition
- Laureen Blissard, Green Builder Coalition
- Bill Roth, SFWCC
This presentation provides a general overview of the WERS program, a whole-house, performance-based approach to water efficiency. This program is applicable for both new and existing homes and can incorporate EPA’s WaterSense program and other water budgeting tools into the final results. Through the use of audience interaction and visual aids, attendees will gain an understanding of the elements of field data capture needed to derive a WERS and how a home would compare to other homes in the area. Finally, they will have a level of understanding sufficient enough to communicate the benefit of a WERS to their state and local communities, and/or elected officials in adopting water conservation measures.
