The Water Scrooge™ was engaged to affect water savings in this 30-unit building. The starting point for this building was annual sewer and water costs of $ 50,037.

The Water Scrooge™ program included the installation of:

  • In-suite efficiency upgrades to reach EPA standard flow rate and
  • Installation of the Toilet Scrooge™ valve to eliminate leaks from running toilets.

Before engaging with The Water Scrooge™, the property averaged 305 Gallons / Unit / Day. 
The Water Scrooge installations took place in September 2023.
The graphs below cover 2022 in Red and 2023 in Blue. Data pulled from NYC DEP portal.

2022 Average consumption: 305 Gallons / Unit / Day

October-Deember 2023 Average consumption: 162 Gallons / Unit / Day - 54% savings.

This installation led to a steady decline in the average daily consumption volume.

Savings / Payback / ROI

The net benefit of the Water Scrooge conservation program is annual savings of approximately $24,000.

This is calculated using:

  • The initial average usage of 9139 Gallons / Day (2022 Consumption)
  • Revised average usage of 4857 Gallons / Day (2023)
  • Water and Sewer Cost of $0.015 / Gallon
  • Hot water savings of $66 daily

The project cost was $12,000 = $400 / door

The payback period on the $12,000 investment is just under six months, with an ROI of 221%
