Fish in a water tank at uOttawa

Every drop counts!

Water Management at the University of Ottawa

We want to create a campus that uses water from the environment responsibly and provides accessible water options to the campus community.

 

Vision

To use no more water than the amount of precipitation that naturally falls on campus

 

Goal

Reduce water consumption by 2% per year and encourage the use of grey water instead of drinking water

 

Progress

  • The University of Ottawa was one of the first universities in Canada to ban bottled water on its campus.
  • More than $250,000 was invested to improve the drinking water system across campus.
