The Grim Reality of the World’s Water Wastage and Opportunity to Conserve and Recycle

On planet earth, water is life.

However, despite being a truly priceless commodity, water is also the one resource that we waste the most. From old leaky water supply mains, taking long baths to ignoring leaky faucets and fixtures, communities waste an astonishingly high amount of water! What makes matters worse is that the vast majority of this wasted water can easily be recycled and conserved!

Now imagine that waste sitting in the farmstead.

It will pollute the environment, and if there is a storm (and we have plenty of storms here in the US) it will runoff into local watersheds polluting our domestic water supplies.

Is Green Engineering The Future?

It’s safe to say that green consulting engineering services is nothing short of a modern day necessity. With climate change becoming a grim reality of the time, attendees of the United Nations Climate Change Summit (2018) have highlighted the steps they need to take to ensure that the future generations can sustain life on this planet.

But saying that a change is needed and actually implementing these changes are two different things altogether. Join us as we discuss whether or not green engineering is sustainable from a financial point of view.
