How to determine meter requirements and locations
Wineries must have a good understanding of where water comes from and how water is used. Using a plumbing diagram that illustrates how water moves through the facilities, a winery can determine meter requirements and identify the appropriate locations for water meters.
Create a plumbing diagram to help identify meter requirements and determine meter locations. The diagram should include:
- Source(s) of water such as wells, municipal connections, storage containers for truck-in water, etc.
- Piping sizes and materials
- Treatment equipment such as filtration, disinfection, or water softening
- Points of use including taps, washrooms, sinks, and other fixtures
