Fort Worth partnering with businesses for greener practices, greater water efficiency

Posted July 6, 2017

The Fort Worth Water Department is offering free, comprehensive water efficiency assessments for industrial, commercial and institutional customers.

The facility-wide assessments will evaluate all water use, including irrigation, cooling towers, metering, process water, bathrooms, showers, laundries, kitchen/cafeteria, outdoor fountains and more.

How it works

Before the site visit, a consultant will request information to help in the preliminary assessment of your water use. After the visit, a comprehensive report of the site assessment will be provided, typically within 30-45 days. This report will make it easy to see and consider best management practices. It will include recommendations of estimated savings in both water and money, with projected costs for implementation.

Although implementation of the recommendations is not mandatory, those options with three years or less return on investment are encouraged for consideration.

Smartwater Partner awards

These awards are open to businesses that implement any of the recommended strategies in the final report. Winners will be recognized for their leadership in water conservation at an annual awards ceremony in the fall.
