Challenges

To all North American municipalities: to mandate that all new developments capture, store, and reuse rainwater for toilet flushing and irrigation, on a “water balance” basis, to achieve maximum reductions in the use of municipal potable water supplies.

To all residential plumbing system designers: to adopt domestic potable water pre-heating from heat recovery systems, where applicable, using single-wall heat exchanges.

To municipal planners and infrastructure designers: to increase the creative treatment of stormwater as a landscape-level public amenity, both to reduce demand on municipal stormwater infrastructure and to educate communities about water in our ecosystem.

To municipal and building developers: to explore and facilitate the implementation of urban agriculture and to support the provision of retail and amenity space that supports the distribution of locally grown produce.
