The report presents the results of a pollution prevention (P2) assessment of the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC). The facility consists of patients wards; surgical facilities; clinical, radiology, histology, and research laboratories; pharmacy; morgue; nursing home; office space, maintenance facilities; and a food court and kitchen. The audit report concluded that the greatest savings in water costs could be realized by reducing domestic and once-through cooling water use. The report suggested installing flow restrictors on flush-valve tiolets, replacing tank toilets with low-volume toilets, installing aerators on sink faucets, and eliminating all once-through cooling units through use of close-loop systems and equipment retrofit or retirement.
