Water Conservation
    at UVa

Conserving water is an integral part of sustainability.

Energy & Utilities strives to utilize water as efficiently and effectively as possible. From increasing our capabilities to detect leaks through better measurement to identifying potential ways to recapture water, E&U is working to achieve greater water conservation throughout the Grounds.

While the University continues to benefit from the many water conservation initiatives that have been implemented, the construction of energy and water intensive research and hospital facilities tends to cause higher water consumption trends.
