Abstract

MANCO SILVA, Deibys Gildardo; GUERRERO ERAZO, Jhoniers  and  OCAMPO CRUZ, Ana María. EFFICIENCY OF RESIDENCIAL WATER CONSUMPTION. Rev. ing. univ. Medellín [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.21, pp.23-38. ISSN 1692-3324.

This revision article encompasses the main models about water demand management from a technological and cultural standpoint as a strategy for having an efficient use in urban water supply systems. It is necessary to know both dynamic and factors affecting household water consumption with the purpose of generating management processes from this level and going forward to higher levels. During the first part of the article a revision is made about demand management and some research experiences are described; then, technical and technological aspects of measurement equipment and low water consumption devices are described; finally, a list of social mechanisms for achieving an efficient consumption of water is provided.

Keywords : Measurement devices; water conservation; water management; social participation.
