  2. Table of Contents • The Community • Water • Wastewater Treatment • Energy • HVAC

  3. Community Food Source

  4. Shared Transportation

  5. Ground Water Water Source Options Surface Water Reservoir Advantages Easily Accessible Less Pumping Large Disadvantages Capital Costs Water Loss Siltation • Wells • Advantages • Inexpensive • Natural Minerals • Disadvantages • Energy • Smaller

  6. Rapid Sand Filter Filtration System Slow Sand Filter Advantages Reliable Minimum maintenance Disadvantages Larger land area Filtration Rate: .015-.15 GPM/ft2 • Advantages • Small, Compact • Flow Rate: 2-3 GPM/ft2 • Disadvantages • More treatment • Pathogen removal

  7. Ozone Disinfection Process Chlorination Advantages Kills most biological pathogens Disadvantages Produces some carcinogens • Advantages • Powerful and effective • Disadvantages • Forms Bromate • Does not kill biological pathogens

  8. The Decision • 1. Source • Groundwater • 2 Filtration • Slow Sand Filter • 3. Disinfection Method • Chlorinization and Reverse Osmosis • 4. Storage • Water Tank

  9. Sustainability • Water Conservation in homes • Toilets: low flow flush valves • Showers: low flow heads • 35% reduction

  10. Wastewater Treatment Evaluation Criteria - Size - Maintenance - Efficiency - Environmental - Appearance • Treatment options • Municipal Wastewater treatment • Septic Tanks

  11. Septic Tanks • Sand Filtration • Constructed Wetlands

  12. Municipal Wastewater Treatment • Once processed, the sludge is nutrient and can be used as fertilizer and compost. • Treated water can be used in farming.

  13. Options for powering our house were photovoltaic energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, and nuclear energy.

  14. Average Daily Consumption: 31 kWh

  15. Criteria for best power source • Power • Cost • Efficiency • Sustainability • Land / Space usage

  16. After analyzing the options against the criteria, we chose to incorporate two of the options.

  17. Heating and Cooling • Geothermal • Passive Solar • High Efficiency Gas Furnace • Electric Heat Pump

  18. Criteria: Determining the best option. • Efficiency • Environmental • Aesthetic Appeal • Implementation Cost

  19. Sustainability comes through the integration of multiple systems. Lennox XP21 Heat Pump Passive Solar Heating

  20. Overview • Water: • Ground water source, slow sand filter, chlorination combined with reverse osmosis • Waste water: • Municipal • Heating • Combination of passive solar and Lennox system • Energy • Combination of PV and geothermal

  21. Questions
