Each day five billion gallons of potable water are used solely to flush toilets. The water savings for the building is 33% over baseline usage reducing the burden on municipal water supply and waste water systems. Scott Credit Union has combined several water-saving measures to increase water efficiency at the Home Office including:
- Water Efficiency Landscaping: The landscape surrounding the building eliminates the need for a permanent irrigation system. With the use of drought tolerant plant materials and grasses.
- Water Use Reduction: The restrooms throughout the building save many gallons of water throughout the year. The toilets use high efficiency flush valves; the urinals use low flow flush valves; and the faucets are electronically controlled.
