Manufacturing companies have also begun to realize the benefits to both the environment
and the bottom line that can be realized from using designs that conserve water and other
precious resources. One manufacturing site alone in Schaumburg,
Illinois, made changes that
save more than 39 million gallons of water per year. They accomplished this by replacing an
open cooling water system that constantly sends water to waste with a closed cooling water
system that recycles the same water again and again.
