Abstract:
Casa del Agua is a research and demonstration project to test the efficiency and liveability of a house that has been relandscaped and redesigned with water saving and recycling devices. Ongoing research focuses on six interrelated tasks: 1) water quality and sampling to characterize graywater and rainwater and to determine their potential to impact the environment; 2) water balance analysis that quantifies fresh water use, graywater production and use, and rooftop runoff and use; 3) evaluation of system components that could enhance graywater reuse; and 4) maintenance and modification of existing systems. An interpretation of recent data and information derived from the performance of the above tasks indicates the effectiveness of the project's water-saving strategies, as well as other significant findings relevant to water conservation in an urban, residential setting.
