Water consumption in higher education
Water consumption and waste on college campuses
Universities require huge amounts of water to maintain campus landscaping, student housing, on-campus dining, facilities, and more. With students using an average of 94 gallons of water each day in dorms alone, total water consumption ranges from 600 million to over 1 billion gallons of water per year.
Epic Cleantec’s water recycling system makes it possible for campuses to reuse wastewater onsite creating an immediate impact on water and infrastructure resilience, as well as helping campuses save on utilities.
