A brief description of the plan of action to achieve water use reduction goals:

Even though Dominican does not have a formal commitment to achieve water use reduction this practice is been pursued by Facilities; this department has the following strategies for water reduction: use of non-potable water for irrigation, replacement of foreign plants for California native plants, and use of weather-informed irrigation.

The Campus Users figure for the baseline year is the average number of students per semester in the 2005-2006 academic year plus the number of faculty and staff in the FY2005-06; and for the performance year, the campus users figure is the average number of students per semester in the 2010-2011 academic year plus the number of faculty and staff in the FY2010-11.

The on-campus residents figure was calculated using the same methodology (average number of on-campus residents per semester in the academic year) for both baseline and performance year.

To calculate the water consumption the following methodology was used:
For the performance year: the water consumption figure for the FY2010-11 (July2010-June2011) is the average water usage of the calendar years 2010 and 2011.
For the baseline year: the water consumption figure for the FY2005-06 (July2005-June2006) is the average water usage of the calendar years 2005 and 2006.
