DOW LIVE EARTH RUN FOR WATER - EVENT REPORTING
This page summarizes the areas of the event you will need to measure and reporting. A reporting document will be provided to you to fill out after the event.
HOW TO COLLECT THE DATA:
You should be able to get all the required information from your contractors. Make sure in advance that they know to collect the information and include it in their contracts.
Transport measurements will be a little more detailed as you will need to track pre-production transport by staff, onsite at event transport during the show, track and report artist/performer transport, and of course the audience's travel. This will be done by a survey of an estimated 10% of your audience. Get a university involved to do that!
Energy – Land line power from the venue and mobile power from your generator contractor.
Water – Total water used from the venue through meter readings, or get bulk water supplier to provide total volume used.
Waste Water/Sewage – Total sewage and waste water removed, from your plumbers and toilet operator.
Waste - Gather information from your waste contractor on total waste, recycling & composting.
