Water Audits

There is nothing more essential than water to life on earth. Water is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development, energy and food production, healthy ecosystems and for human survival itself. Water is also at the heart of adaptation to climate change, serving as the crucial link between society and the environment.

Water use has been growing globally at more than twice the rate of population increase. Demand and Supply ratio of water is affected drastically.  The industry is an important stakeholder in water resource management and as a responsible member of the community, needs to be proactive in combating water risks.

World Water Day, which is annual observance by UN on March 22, highlights the importance of water. Focus of World Water Day is in line with the target of Sustainable Development Goals. The day brings light to sensitive issued like water scarcity, water pollution, inadequate water supply. EGSS contributes to achieve this target by conducting water audits for our clients.

In recent 2020 notification by CGWA, ground water users including industrial/infrastructure/mining were informed to mandatorily submit the  on Impact Assessment Report/ comprehensive Hydro-geological report/ Water Audit Report. The report is to be used to grant the ground water NOC to the party.

Water audit report for obtaining ground water NOC from CGWA requires the water audit by certified/authorized body also referred as Regulatory audit. However, EGSS supports the organizations in sustainable development goals by conducting non-regulatory water audit. Grant of ground water NOC to new users also calls for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). EGSS provides detailed EIA services as well.

Water audits act as an instrument to identify areas of higher specific water use, assess wastewater pollutant load and determine techniques for mitigation through the application of 3R (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) principle. It is a systematic process of objectively obtaining a water balance by measuring flow of water from the site of water withdrawal or treatment, through the distribution system, and into areas where it is used and finally discharged. Conducting a water audit involves calculating water balance, water use and identifying ways for saving water.

Water audit involves Preliminary water survey and Detailed water audit. Preliminary water survey is conducted to collect background information regarding plant activities, water consumption and water discharge pattern and water billing, rates. After the analysis of the secondary data collected from the industry, detailed water audit is conducted, involving the following steps:
