  • Description

    “Water is energy and water is life. For too long, we have overlooked the connections between water and energy usage in our homes, communities, places of work, and power plants. Water resources, when applied to vegetation, particularly in conjunction with buildings, save energy, thereby also saving the water needed to produce this energy. In this sense, water is an essential part of cycles of urban and regional sustainability.”


    —From JBC’s course manual on Integrated Water Management



    Leaders from Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the American Society of Irrigation Consultants commissioned JBC to create a new educational series on water management. Designed for leaders such as facilities managers and engineers, the pioneering course is taught in three four-hour workshops. Three additional workshops are planned to complete this extensive body of knowledge.


    The Seminar examines alternative water types and sources with the overall goal of achieving Net-Zero Water use. The course is a roadmap for implementing integrated water technologies, policies, new methods for processing and conserving water, and for recapturing water from alternative sources.


    JBC developed the course presentations and participant manuals with the guidance of a multi-disciplinary team of nationally-recognized experts. This seminar and manual explore new opportunities hidden within our economy, building systems, and neighborhood development for managing water and energy resources more wisely. The course will ultimately improve the decision-making and sustainable practices of facilities leaders nationwide.
