Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone Authority Water Audit Report


The USAID Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) Project prepared this report in collaboration with the Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) in the Philippines.

The Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone Authority (Ecozone), is an economic zone and Freeport, developed for use as an industrial park. In an effort to improve the efficiency of their facility operations and to instill a new environmental ethic into their business practices, a water audit was conducted by Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) at their administration building. The purpose of the water audit is to provide a thorough understanding of the Ecozone water uses by identifying and measuring all water using fixtures, appliances, and practices in order to recommend potential water saving efficiencies.

The Ecozone on-site water audit was conducted on July 15, 2016. The scope of the water audit focused on identifying:

  • leaks;
  • sanitary fixtures (toilets, urinals, faucets and showers);
  • kitchen fixtures and appliances;
  • janitorial water use; and
  • fleet vehicle washing.
