|Abstract: ||Fresh water cooling tower system in Hong Kong consumes potable water as its makeup
source. However in reality, it is possible to use non-potable water like the harvested
rainwater as a part of makeup source for the conservation of potable water because rainfall
usually comes at April to September while the cooling tower system has higher water
consumption from May to October in H.K. environment. Besides, the analysis of
statistics revealed that rainwater harvesting can contribute up to 15% of makeup source
prior to the maximization of "Ratio of rainwater retention tank volume to catchment area
(V/A)". In accordance with the guidelines - "Quality Water Recognition Scheme for
Buildings" of WSD and "Minimum Monitoring Frequency of Makeup Water for Cooling
Tower System" of EMSD, we put up with a feasible rainwater treatment process to meet
the water quality standard.|
