About the ICI Benchmarking Task Force (2006-2007)
With the support of a Pollution Prevention Advisory Board (PPAB) grant, northern Colorado water providers developed water use benchmarks for select ICI sectors in order to inform the water conservation process. The sectors studied included restaurants, schools, hotels/motels, and nursing/assisted living facilities. The group is currently in the process of disseminating the results of this effort.
|Restaurants||0.17-0.21 thousand gallons (kgal)/square foot|
|Schools||0.012-0.019 kgal/square foot|
|Hotels/motels||0.079-0.165 kgal/square foot|
|Nursing/assisted living||0.062-0.101 kgal/square foot|
The benchmarking results are conveyed in more detail in the following documents:
