With water supply being dictated wholly by geography, companies are often under the misapprehension that they cannot reduce their water costs without reducing their consumption.
If you are concerned about water consumption and costs an historical audit is the natural place to start. Not only will this identify savings potential immediately but will provide, in many cases, an influx of cash through retrospective rebates to fund further water saving initiatives.
Before work commences it is vital to confirm that the charges currently levied by the water company are valid for the supply in existence at the premises.
One in three sites will reveal a savings opportunity through analysis alone with savings varying from 10-45% of annual expenditure. Further onsite works can reveal even greater savings and retrospective rebate opportunities (going back six years in line with the Statute of Limitations).
A historical audit will address, but not be limited to, the following:
- All types of billing anomalies (duplication, over-estimation of accounts, overcharges)
- Investigation of all fixed charges applied
- Verification of allowances available
- Validation of Surface Water Drainage charges
- Assessment of consumption
- Identification of possible leak/shared supply
- Confirmation of appropriate meter sizing, water meter audit
- Investigation of Trade Effluent consents
- Potential for water efficiency measures and/or rainwater harvesting
Upon completion of the analysis a full report detailing the opportunities available to the customer, both financial and environmental and advice on how to proceed will be provided.
