The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is seeking applicants to serve as technical experts on Water Efficiency and Sanitation Standard (WE•Stand) task groups.
The WE•Stand Technical Committee is seeking subject experts to join the following task groups:
Alternate Water Sources — The scope of this task group is to research technologies and develop provisions for on-site treatment for storm water and blackwater catchment systems for non-potable and potable reuse, and the appropriate disinfection and testing requirements for these systems according to the end use.
Water Efficiency and Conservation — This task group investigates the water-efficiency performance for different kinds of water heaters and water heating control strategies and also pool covers that allow the collection of rainwater to be used as makeup water. The task group will also research the efficiency performance of sand filters versus cartridge filters; and landscape plant material that reduces water usage. The task group will review landscape provisions in WE•Stand for updates.
Premise Water Supply System Design — This task group investigates premise plumbing water supply system design provisions that would result in improved water quality and water- and/or energy-efficiency performance.
Commercial Food Services — This group is to researches new water conservation technologies for the commercial food service industry. The task group will explore better solutions for exempting the requirement of tempering water for combination ovens, commercial food steamers, commercial dishwashers, and ware washers while also considering the impact of hot water on grease interceptor performance.
Non-traditional Toilets — The scope of this task group is to develop an informative appendix for the Composting Toilet Inspection Checklist, and to investigate non-traditional toilets in the pending ISO/FDIS 30500 Non-Sewered Sanitation Systems for possible inclusion in WE•Stand.
Those interested in participating on the WE•Stand Task Groups may apply at online. The deadline to apply is Sept. 10, 2018.
