2022 Department of Commerce Energy & Environmental Stewardship Award - Energy and Water Conservation Project

Recognized for the design and implementation of a successful freshwater conservation project. By using largely existing NIST infrastructure, existing capacity in a closed loop of recycled cooling water, and minimal new hardware costs, this project is saving an estimated 3.6 million gallons per year of fresh water. When combined with other new water systems upgrades within the Quantum Sensors Group, the site will save an estimated 8.9 million gallons per year when compared to previous standard practices, in addition to reducing water and maintenance bills.
