GLRPPR Sector Resource: Water Impact Index

Water Impact Index

The Water Impact Index is a tool developed by Veolia Water to measure the impact of activities on a local water resource. It is unique in that it integrates volume, quality and local stress factors into a single indicator. The tool is designed for those with some degree of operational understanding of water and wastewater systems, and requires an understanding of a variety of factors including water chemistry and the energy-water nexus. It can be used to analyze both municipal and industrial systems. ?At the end of the calculation, you will receive a printable PDF report. This report can be used in conjunction with a traditional cost analysis to determine the best ROI in terms of areas in which you can minimize your impact on your local water resource -- and maybe even save costs doing so.
