ASHRAE Standard 514 introduces new requirements for managing building water risks
The Amercian Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-conditioning (ASHRAE) recently introduced an enhanced standard for water in human-occupied buildings that establishes minimum requirements for managing risks associated with physical, chemical, and microbial hazards. 

Improve water quality by reducing wasted water
Over the past 50 years, the U.S. population has doubled—and water use has tripled, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). That's critical not only for water availability but also for water quality.

River quality worldwide suffers from extreme weather events
