Grundfos Pumps to Halve Water Consumption at Fresno Facility

Posted on June 28, 2011 by John OReillyNo Comments

Grundfos Pumps Corporation today announced that it will voluntarily cut in half the amount of potable water used to irrigate its 27-acre Fresno campus during 2011, with plans to eliminate the practice entirely by the end of 2012.

As a result, the global pumps and pumping systems manufacturer will save roughly 3 million gallons of potable water during 2011 - enough to fill four Olympic-sized swimming pools.  In 2013, the facility plans for all campus irrigation to be supplied by reclaimed water.

To achieve a reduction of this scale, the company will redesign its entire campus master plan to utilize “water-wise” plant material; a new “smart” irrigation system; and water harvesting systems and techniques to replace existing potable water.

The aggressive plan bolsters existing sustainability programs already in place at the 180,000 square-foot manufacturing facility, including the addition of a seven-acre solar array, use of energy-efficient lighting, air compressors, pumps, fans and low-flow plumbing fixtures.
