Service By Medallion, Elias Nacif Win Water Champion At 2016 Silicon Valley Water Conservation Award
By: Service by Medallion
This year, Service by Medallion and Elias Nacif were honored as the 2016 Water Champion at the awards ceremony taking place at Google. The awards are presented to organizations whose programs and leadership have advanced water conservation and re-use in the Silicon Valley. Medallion's application was reviewed and approved by a diverse cross-selection of represented parties, including past winners, which are concerned about water supply and the need for strategic response to both droughts and a new era of water scarcity.
The core of the application was surrounded by the water saving strategies that have been applied at Medallion client's sites, which provide water conservation benefits to well over 30 million Sqft. of office space. Elias rolled out Medallion's Green Initiative to improve sustainability practices, both internally and externally. He created a water conservation checklist for clients that provide an inventory of potential water saving opportunities and a return on investment for each product, including toilet and urinal fixtures, stand-alone flushometers, water faucets and cleaning agents and equipment. A change-out to low-flow faucet aerators has been saving over one million gallons of water per year at some client sites.

In addition, Elias introduced a Chemical Management System that consistently provides the correct dilution for cleaning products, decreasing water use, chemical exposure, and removing plastic bottles and unnecessary packing from the waste stream. Medallion also switched to using microfiber cloths that require minimal chemical/water dilution, mop bucket systems with an integrated water filtration that generate cleaner water, and an exterior auto scrubber to replace power washing of debris that uses recycled water and uses only 270 gallons per day versus 1,050 gallons per day with standard equipment.
The goal of the Awards is to raise awareness and celebrate outstanding achievements in water conservation and reuse through best practices, efficiency and innovation. Congratulations to Service by Medallion and Elias Nacif on this prestigious award.
