Abstract

BELLOT, Rodolfo  and  FISCARELLI, Diego. SUSTAINABLE HOUSING: A DISCUSSION ON THE EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT OF WATER USE IN DOMESTIC INSTALLATIONS. CASE STUDY: SANTA FE -ARGENTINA. Rev. hábitat sustentable [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.1, pp.68-81. ISSN 0719-0700.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22320/07190700.2020.10.01.06.

This work aims to present a critical reflection about the efficiency of water resource management in the case study - City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe (Argentina). Analyzing the role of sanitary installations in optimizing water use as an essential resource. In methodological terms, a three-dimensional analysis is proposed: the city’s water system, the current regulations for surplus management and the water network supply. The author’s prior research projects are recovered to measure typical household consumption, considering two variables: rational water use and consideration of service efficiency technologies.In summary, abatement curves are made to characterize the efficiency in three scenarios. As a discussion, the responsibilities of users, and the praxis of architecture professionals, responsible for conceiving the sustainability of urban housing in Santa Fe, are questioned.

Keywords : housing; sustainability; efficiency; water; abatement curve.
