Water: Accomplishments

Accomplishments

  • Potable water use on campus in 2016 decreased for the third year in a row, despite increases in our campus population. Potable water consumption per capita for the 2016/17 academic year dropped 17% below UCSB’s three-year baseline (FY2005/06, FY2007/08).
  • When finished in 2017, two new 6-story Tenaya Towers at San Joaquin Apartments will be dual-plumbed with a recycled water system. This is estimated to save over 600,000 gallons of potable water per year.
  • San Joaquin and Pauley Track and have been approved as new locations for recycled water use.
  • Our Campus is now utilizing EnergyCAP for tracking water use tracking and reporting.
