The UW has spent approximately $3 million on water conservation efforts since 2001, and has seen dramatic reductions in consumption as a result. The downward trend is clear in the graph below. The summer peaks are also apparent in the next graph, reflecting the fact that significant amounts of water are used for cooling and irrigation. In FY2015, we averaged 1,016,468 gallons per day which is less (better) than the targeted 1,176,000 gallons per day.
The summer peaks and winter lows are especially apparent in this graph showing water usage by month. The trend line shows that our overall usage is decreasing.
