Every Day is Earth Day for Plumbing and Mechanical Professionals
Date:4/21/2010

ion 1.0 of the International Green Construction Code (IGCC), covers virtually every major category of sustainable design for the construction industry. Because many sustainable applications focus on water and energy conservation, a huge portion of these solutions are plumbing and mechanical based.

For example, systems for collecting and using rainwater, graywater and other non-potable water systems are outlined. An extensive list of water-saving fixtures and appliances that serve commercial and residential users is also provided. In addition, these codes include water-saving measures for landscape irrigation, commercial car washing systems, and pools, spas and fountains.

Renewable energy systems such as wind turbines, biogas, solar thermal and photovoltaic cells, as well as alternative energy technologies like geothermal heating, and energy recovery are just a few examples of dramatic energy-saving solutions being developed by code and mechanical professionals.

Water purity is another vital aspect of environmental protection that is the focus of many plumbing professionals. One startling example is that over 40% of the world’s population do not have access to proper sanitation and safe drinking water is unavailable to 1.1 billion people. This crisis is so critical on a global level that safe water and basic sanitation have surpassed global warming as the highest priority for many global councils.

These issues claim the lives of millions of people each year. To work towards eradicating the global sanitation crisis which will, in turn, lead to purer water overall, the Code Council is providing its expertise and assistance by partnering with the World Toilet Organization and other sanitation-related international organizations.

Conserving water and all other precious resources is critical to ensuring Earth Days can continue for centuries. Plumbing and mechanical professionals and the entire construction industry
