 Wave-Saver  Water
 Management Software
                           Water Alliances for Voluntary Efficiency (WAVE) is a non-regulatory water efficiency
                           partnership created and supported by U.S. EPA. WAVE'S mission is to encourage commer-
                      cial businesses and other institutions to reduce water consumption while increasing efficiency,
                      profitability, and competitiveness.

                      What Can WAVE*Saver Do For You?
                      All WAVE participants receive WAVE* Saver, a free analytical software package that assists
                      partners in determining cost-effective water efficiency measures with minimal time, effort,
                      and expense. WAVE'Saver helps partners to:

                      • Create detailed and accurate characterizations of overall water use of properties.

                      • Track water use over time and calculate the incremental cost of water.

                      9 Select, customize, and print property-specific forms to guide the collection of water use data.

                      * Determine current allocation of water use (and related energy use) among all fixtures and

                      • Calculate and compare payback period, annual savings, and costs of installation and
                        maintenance of any combination of water efficiency measures.

                      • Determine the most applicable cost-saving measures from hundreds of efficiency options.

                      9 Create property-specific budget projections and track ongoing costs and savings over time due
                        to cost-saving measures.

                      • Print presentation-ready graphs and reports.
