Municipal Water Efficiency Eco-Cluster: Credit Valley Hospital

Posted June 7, 2019

In 2017, the Region of Peel retained Enviro-Stewards to complete a water assessment at Trillium Health PartnersCredit Valley Hospital under the Region’s Indoor Water Assessment program.

The hospital implemented two water efficiency measures:

  • Sterilizer units using water eductors were replaced with new ones equipped with vacuum pumps.
  • A heat exchanger was installed to preheat boiler feed-water using the boiler blowdown water, eliminating the need for blowdown cooling water.

These two measures together saved 18,615 cubic metres of water per year.
