The Green Healthcare Programme, being led by CTC on behalf of The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Health Service Executive (HSE), has developed a guide: Water Efficiency: A best practice guide for Irish Healthcare Facilities.
The guide looks at efficient water use in a healthcare setting, and includes benchmarking of Irish healthcare facilities in terms of water use. It covers monitoring of water use, benchmarking, leak identification, surveying main water users, sub-metering, as well as identifying best practice flowrates for fixtures and fittings.
A brief guide to setting up a water efficiency programme is also set out.
The guide can be downloaded here:
The Guide was launched at a Health Service Executive (HSE) Water Workshop which was held in Tullamore at the Midlands Regional Hospital on 10th October 2017. Details of the Workshop along with Speakers and Presentations are available here.
