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
