Free Green Building Lectures
April 5, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The City of Scottsdale’s Green Building Program advocates responsible use of our natural resources in the design and construction of our built environment. Each lecture will address one of the many green building topics that demonstrate energy/resource efficient, healthy, and environmentally responsible building practices.
Did you know that in a residential setting, up to 70% of city-supplied potable water is used primarily for landscape irrigation and 30% of the remainder is used for flushing toilets? What’s the difference between low-flow and high-efficiency fixtures? And what about hot water? Up to 10,000 gallons of water are wasted each year waiting for hot water delivery in bathrooms and kitchens.
April’s lecture program will feature three experts in the water saving technology arena. They will 1) offer landscaping tips to reduce irrigation needs while providing for a healthy and beautiful landscape environment, 2) present EPA’s WaterSense labeled product program that can reduce your water consumption by 20-30%, and 3) discuss options for the efficient delivery of hot water to bathrooms and kitchens.
