Policy Goals

  • Reduce growth-adjusted potable water consumption on all campuses and health locations by 20 percent by 2020 and 36 percent by 2025, when compared to a three-year average baseline of FY 2005-06, FY 2006-07, and FY 2007-08.

Progress Towards Goals

Five campuses and the Office of the President have already met or exceeded the 2020 and 2025 goals of reducing growth-adjusted potable water consumption by 20 percent and 36 percent, respectively. Four campuses and one medical center have met the 2020 goal. This year, the campuses updated their Water Action Plans to chart a course for continued progress on water savings.

Collectively, UC saved 268 thousand gallons of potable water in 2017-18 compared to the previous year.
