The Division of Facilities and Campus Operations is always looking for ways to reduce water consumption on campus. A new chiller was installed in Burchard that has a recirculating system for condenser water compared to the previous, single-pass system. This has the potential to save more than 1.3 million gallons of potable water each year. Three smaller chillers were also piped into that system, which will double the water savings.

All new construction has toilets and sinks that meet EPA Waterwise standards.
