Metric: 4.1 Total Potable Water Use (kgal)

To quantify our water use reductions and to identify further opportunities, the campus could report not only the total absolute potable water usage, but also the water use relative to the number of weighted campus users and relative to gross square footage of building space.  Providing this data would allow benchmarking of our campus relative to institutional peers and would support new water conservation measures that could establish our campus as a leader in water conservation. 

The amount is reported by F&S Utilities & Energy Services’ Business Operations, in the "Utility Summary_FY" excel file.  It is the sum of "IAWC Main Water Bill Usage" and "IAWC Small Bills Usage."

The percent reduction of water use on campus is also available.
