Water Use Reduction in California Using Modular Construction
With water use in California at an all time high and facing unprecedented drought conditions, the State Water Resources Control Board plans to adopt water reduction mandates on May 6 to implement Gov. Jerry Brown’s April 1 executive order mandating a 25 percent statewide reduction in water use. That decision is one of several important actions that will impact the San Diego region’s water supplies and conservation targets over the next year.
The Water Authority has submitted formal comments to the state board about its proposed framework for water use reductions because the initial draft would undermine investments in water supply reliability projects and harm the state and local economies.
In addition, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s board of directors on April 14 approved a 15 percent water supply cutback to the San Diego County Water Authority and its other customers starting July 1. The Water Authority’s Board of Directors will consider establishing fiscal year 2016 water delivery reductions for its 24 member agencies at a special meeting on May 14 along with other regional drought response actions.
Modular Construction is Sustainable: Design elements and building material features can be built into your new prefab modular building. Recently, upgraded energy codes have increased the performance of all buildings and would be a standard feature on a modular building. Additional features utilize high efficiency HVAC equipment for excellent fresh air delivery and economic operation with technologically advanced controls. Daylight strategies to increase the use of natural light should be considered depending upon the location of the modular building on your site. Water conservation is addressed through low flow plumbing fixtures and faucets. The overall low impact of the modular building process is built into every building. Bulk material delivery, low VOC materials, recycled content and more are fairly standard features provided with quality prefab modular buildings. USModular, Inc. is prepared to address these benefits when discussing the best approach to your building design. All of these features contribute to reduction of water use.
