    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability A Sustainability © A sustainable planet will provide a healthy biosphere with clean air , water and land for all living things far into the future. Resources will not be consumed at a rate that they can not be replaced. Htec systems Slide 5
    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability A Sustainability © A sustainable organization implements permanent management and operational philosophies that engages a motivated workforce to reduce environmental impacts on all phases of its operations, thereby reducing waste and energy, increasing productivity and reducing costs. These actions promote an organization that is able to thrive in the future. Htec systems Slide 6

    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability Many are coming around to conclude that LEAN is the best management philosophy to create a sustainable organization and a sustainable planet. What is the evidence? LEAN empowers the entire organization to systematically REDUCE WASTE, CONSERVE RESOURCES AND REDUCE ENERGY!! Htec systems Slide 11
    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability A principal proponent of LEAN is the U.S. EPA. epa.gov/lean Htec systems Slide 12
    • U.S. EPA received Shingo Prize in 2002 • More than 20 federal agencies are using LEAN • More than 20 state environmental agencies are using LEAN • A MOU between EPA and ECOS (Mar 10) was signed to use LEAN tools to enhance achievement of environmental goals.
    • LEAN “Lean for Dummies”, Natalie J. Sayer BSME, University of Dayton (1988) UD Early Leader in LEAN, Professor Carol Shaw formed Center for Competitive Change in Late 1980’s. Now Associated with UDRI and Still Training Personnel.
    • LEAN Programs are developed within the LEAN Program: • Water Conservation; • Wastewater Minimization; • Storm Water Management; • Solid Waste Recycling; • Green Chemical Purchasing; and • Energy Conservation; etc. etc.
    • LEED Programs Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, a program of the U.S. Green Building Council (usgbc.org) Started in early 1990’s to develop rating system for new buildings to achieve Silver, Gold or Platinum Ratings for New Buildings There are also certifications for Healthcare, Schools, Retail, Homes There have been over 32,000 LEED projects certified since the program was initiated.
    • LEED Programs Operations & Maintenance Certification published in October 2090 for existing buildings and covers: • Sustainable Sites; • Water Efficiency; • Energy and Atmosphere; • Materials and Resources; • Solid Waste Management; • Indoor Air Quality; and • Innovations in Operation.
    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability Reliability Management (Maintenance) In many organizations, Maintenance is not revered as some other positions in the plant, EXCEPT when production goes down and all hell breaks loose. Downtime is critical to an organization whether it is production, healthcare or a large facility. Htec systems Slide 18
    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability Reliability Management (Maintenance) Maintenance should be changed to Reliability, and that the personnel be assigned to a Continuous Improvement Team. During downtime, the group is working on improving the systems. Htec systems Slide 19
    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability Monitoring Audits • Continuous Monitoring is mandatory for continuous improvement. • To qualify for a LEED certified project, the building must have a Building Management Program to monitor in real time, electrical power, natural gas, HVAC performance, water, etc. • To measure performance improvement, a benchmark must be established. Htec systems Slide 20
    • Dayton Water Conference - The Path to Water Sustainability Monitoring Audits Auditing is the key to any successful compliance program. Establishing work standards and initiating complex programs, without oversight and periodic monitoring of the program, generally results in a loss of direction and eventually the abandonment of the program altogether. If the organization thinks enough of the program to monitor the progress, then employees will take the program seriously. Htec systems Slide 21
