Water Management Solutions UK Ltd was contacted by Queens Park Ranger Football Club as a result of rising costs for water and effluent at their Loftus Road stadium. WMS UK agreed to undertake a full water audit to investigate usage at the ground with a view to eliminating unnecessary wastage and driving down costs.
WMS UK started to review the current plus historic water charges and we immediately identified areas of high consumption within the stadium and overcharges which had been going on for years.
WMS UK profiled the water usage and was able to identify high usage through faulty equipment. This was successfully rectified and monitored. Although we were unable to obtain a retrospective refund for this type of fault, it significantly reduced the ongoing annual spend for water and sewerage.
We also revealed that the water company had been charging the stadium for a meter that had been removed four years earlier! These charges were not valid and WMS UK successfully challenged the water company to refund the club all of their money back over the 4 years period.
Finally, the billing revealed that an undervalued allowance had been applied to this account for the irrigation of the football pitch. WMS UK has now optimised this allowance for Queens Park Rangers FC.
Overall this project has yielded substantial refunds and has also significantly reduced the annual ongoing spend for the club.

Non return to sewer allowances
