Water Efficiency Enhancement : Water Efficiency Enhancement in Myyrmäki and Leppävaara Campuses
Water is the secret source of life and considered as the main component of the living cell. Humans have recognized this fact since existence. Therefore, acquiring water resources has been related with settling, energy, economic growth and even war. Thus, monitoring and researching water sources, usages and discharges are must for all nations.
This thesis introduces the available methods used in monitoring water consumption such as water footprint which is an empirical indicator showing total volume of fresh water used by individual, society or companies for production and consumption purposes, for example for food, paper and heat and enabling the user to keep track on location, time and volume of water usage.
Water Efficiency Enhancement follows Smart Campus project’s targets to increase the energy efficiency at the Myyrmäki (Leiritie1) and Leppävaara (Vanha maantie 6) campuses of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. The project is estimated to reduce water consumption in both campuses from 20 up to 60 percent of water used in both campuses. Moreover, the thesis contributes to the knowledge of consumption rates by investigating bills, metres, sensors and inventories using a historical approach. It also provides an environmental engineering interpretation for water basics of fluid mechanics and introduces new available techniques such as water flow rate-monitoring sensors.
