Many public buildings are wasting vast quantities of water every year. As all non-residential buildings are charged per m3 of water used, there is a monetary cost as well as an environmental cost to this excessive water use. And yet it is easy to save significant amounts of water, often with very low cost solutions. The trick is to understand where the building is using water efficiently, and where it is wasting water; after that the most cost effective solutions can be identified and implemented.

Who will it be delivered by?

Cath Hassell, ech2o who has fifteen years’ experience of providing sustainable water solutions (both behavioural and technological) in schools, offices, pubs, restaurants, night clubs, community buildings and housing.

She has worked in practical water and land management for more than 10 years, including more than 5 years at CAT where she worked as Senior Water and Natural Resources Coo

Mae nifer o adeiladau cyhoeddus yn gwastraffu llawer iawn o ddŵr pob blwyddyn.  Gan fod pob adeilad dibreswyl yn talu fesul m3 o ddŵr a ddefnyddir, mae yna gost ariannol yn ogystal â chost amgylcheddol i’r defnydd gormodol hwn o ddŵr.  Serch hynny, peth hawdd yw arbed dŵr sylweddol, a hynny yn aml drwy ddefnyddio atebion isel eu cost.  Y gamp yw deall ymhle mae adeilad yn defnyddio dŵr yn effeithlon ac ymhle y mae’n gwastraffu dŵr; yna gellir adnabod yr atebion mwyaf cost effeithlon a’u rhoi ar waith.

Pwy fydd yn cyflwyno’r cwrs?

Cath Hassell, ech2o sydd â phymtheg mlynedd o brofiad o ddarparu atebion dŵr cynaliadwy (ymddygiadol a thechnolegol) mewn ysgolion, swyddfeydd, tafarndai, bwytai, clybiau nos, tai ac adeiladau cymunedol.
Grace Crabb, CyDA. Astudiodd Grace am radd israddedig mewn Cadwraeth Bioamrywiaeth ym Mhrifysgol Caint.  Yna, enillodd radd MSc mewn Cyflenwad Dŵr Cymunedol ym Mhrifysgol Cranfield.  Mae wedi bod yn gwneud gwaith ymarferol ym maes rheoli dŵr a thir ers dros ddeng mlynedd, gan gynnwys 5 mlynedd yng Nghanolfan y Dechnoleg Amgen lle’r oedd yn Uwch Gydlynydd Dŵr ac Adnoddau Naturiol.
