Donovan Brock with Dean's Pickle & Specialty Products, 910-267-4711 has
implemented water saving techiques in his facility in Faison.  We do not
have a formal case study written on them yet but the following describes
some of the basic water saving changes to their facility:

- repaired water leaks on equipment in processing areas and underground
pipe leaks (some process lines were loosing ukp to 15 gal/min of water)

-the computer operated pasturizers were inspected and adjustments were
made to reduce the amount of water used, initially each pasturizer used
an average of 80,000/gallons of water per day now they average around
30,000/gallons of water per day

- Dean's reuses some of its desalt water with nanofiltration, the
recycled water is used in the fermentation tanks

- water from the cooling tower is recirculated to be used 1. to cool
product 2. reused as desalt water 3. for clean-up, saves 30,000
gallons/water per day

- repaired leaking valves

- increased employee awareness by training
