Dubuque City Hall Saving Millions of Gallons of Water
Lauren DeWitt, Reporter
DUBUQUE, Iowa - Dubuque City Hall is looking to become even more sustainable. In May a new heating and air conditioning system was installed.
The new system was installed after an energy audit revealed City Hall used between 8 and 10 million gallons of water per year, with most of that water being traced to their HVAC system.
"The purpose of the project was to reduce the amount of water we used in cooling the building. We can save 90-95% of the water that we previously used in the project. We are very excited about the results so far." Said Rich Russell, Dubuque Building Services Manager.
The new unit will allow tax payers to save on production costs and water treatment costs.
