Non-manufacturing water use has been reduced by 45 percent, for a savings of over 4.1 million gallons of water annually.
Rainwater is collected from the roof by a cutting-edge roof drain system. It is then stored in cisterns above rest rooms and is used instead of potable water to flush toilets.
Waterless urinals that use a filter-based technology save over 1 million gallons of water annually.
