Well water is used in the cooling of various processes at Kalsec Inc. Due to continued growth and process additions, over a period of time, the well has reached its maximum capacity before system pressure loss. This loss has caused scheduling issues in the production lines. While this poses an economical concern, there is also a sustainability and environmental concern to reaching the well’s capacity. The main focus was to reduce well water usage to increase facility capacity and reduce its environmental impact
