Water Conservation

UTM has taken on many projects to reduce the amount of potable water used in campus buildings.  Some of these projects include:

  • Low-flow fixtures in many of our newer buildings
  • Rainwater harvesting systems on the Instructional Building, Deerfield Hall, Health Sciences Complex, and North Phase B.  Collected rainwater is used for irrigation and toilet flushing.
  • Cooling tower replacement
  • Softened cooling tower water
  • Reduction of water use in Central Utilities Plant
