Water Strategy for Indoor Residential Activities

Water Strategy Infographic

An updated water strategy for residential indoor activities has been recently reviewed at tOD. The following is a brief explanation of the process used:

1.The inputs and sources of water are divided by quality:

  • The Potable Water Quality comes from treated Rain Water from the Roofs
  • The Fresh Water Quality comes from treated Pond Water from the Ponds, treated Grey Water, and the remaining Rain Water from the Roofs.

2.The uses:

  • The Potable Water Quality is used for Drinking and Cooking
  • The Fresh Water Quality is used for Shower, Hand Washing, Laundry, Dishwasher, Toilet Flushing and House Cleaning

3.The Outputs and Reuses

  • Drinking and cooking activities do not have any output
  • Shower, Hand Washing, Laundry have Grey Water as an output that is treated and reused as an input
  • Dishwasher, Toilet Flushing have Black Water as an output that is used for irrigation and possibly directed to the pond
  • House Cleaning do not have any output
