Reduce water usage by 5% within three months and by 10% within 12 months.

Results:
Within 30 days, an eMRI supported team identified several efficiencies that generated a 7% reduction in water usage. Ongoing efforts resulted in opportunities for an additional 6% decrease within 6 months. In addition to the reduced water usage, particulate loading in effluent streams was reduced by over 10%, further lowering costs and enhancing sustainability.

Savings:
$440,000.
