Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) engaged Kennedy Jenks and Nakano Associates to assist them in exploring opportunities for water reuse in their facilities. Our team assessed the effectiveness of SPR’s existing water reuse and conservation systems, evaluated other reuse and conservation systems that SPR could implement, and determined a high-level implementation plan for the reuse and conservation systems examined to decrease long-term operations and maintenance costs.
After months of research and analysis, our team delivered a detailed plan, a Water Reuse Tool, and eight summary recommendations. The recommendations focus on ways SPR can optimize their existing facilities as well as how to reduce their biggest water uses through implementing new water reuse systems. In addition to technical solutions, the recommendations highlight the advantage of developing partnerships, outreach and communications to bring in and leverage grant funding that will help these systems get built.
