This is one of the latest Singapore Standards on the water management in Singapore. It helps an organisation to be accountable for water usage. PUB is targeting customers with more than 5000 cubic meters to be SS 577 certified.
I have successfully help my organization to work towards the goal of getting SS 577 certification. It is a tough process and involve many departments within the organization in order to ensure that your are able to get the certification. We have engage a Water Efficiency Manager who act as a consultant to help us and our organization to achieve the goal.
The SS 577 has a framework and guide lines to help you to improve your water usage and efficiency. It will allowed you to know where your organization is utilizing the water. Many organizations are unaware of where their water are been consumed. Developing a Water Efficiency Management Plan (WEMP) will give you an overview of your water usage and bills.
I am hoping that we can achieve the PUB Water Efficiency Building (WEB) Gold Certification. The organization must obtained the SS 577 and be the top 10% most water efficiency company in the industry.
I will talk more about how to fill in the WEMP plan for PUB in my next blog post.
