Stanford Saves 3.5M Gallons of Water with NO-DES Equipment

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

In early 2019, Stanford Water Resources coordinated a flushing of the domestic water system, which is a routine maintenance activity. Rather than flushing water through hydrants onto hardscapes and into storm drains, they established a contract with NO-DES to use equipment that allows water to move through the potable water system. The NO-DES equipment includes filtration and water quality monitors that return high quality drinking water to the system. This technology has saved an estimated 3.5 million gallons – enough water to supply the campus for more than two days.
