Sustainability and compliance at the forefront
The system installed at Fifteen Fifty and operated by Epic Cleantec is designed to recycle 7,500 gallons daily for reuse in the building’s toilet and urinal flushing. The system consists of an initial storage tank that captures greywater from showers, bathroom sinks, laundry, coupled with rainwater from the roof. After passing through an advanced purification process consisting of biological treatment, ultrafiltration membranes, and disinfection, the systems makes use of real-time monitoring technologies to verify that the recycled water meets the highest levels of cleanliness in order to safeguard public health.
Rainwater collected from the building roof is pre-filtered and directed to a separate concrete collection tank. Once full, it is pumped into the greywater collection tank where the two sources are combined for treatment. Potable make-up water is supplied to the treated water tank with an air gap to prevent cross-connection, while ensuring continuous water service to the building in the event of routine maintenance or interruptions to the system’s performance. The system has the capacity to recycle 7,500 gallons of greywater per day (or over 2.5 million gallons per year) and will save Related save more than $90,000 annually on utility costs over the next 10 years.
