Water Efficiency Initiatives

Although Carleton's campus lies in the land of 10,000 lakes, water conservation remains a key priority from both a sustainability and economic standpoint. The facilities and maintenance department have many policies and projects underway, here are just a few:

  • Low-flow shower heads in all campus showers- initiated through the Sustainability Revolving Fund (SRF)
  • Low-flush toilets
  • Water bottle refilling stations
  • Targeted irrigation to maintain turf in high traffic areas
  • Landscaping to minimize erosion and runoff
