Does the institution use non-potable water (e.g., harvested rainwater or graywater) for irrigation and/or other applications?:
Yes

A brief description of the source of non-potable water and how it is used:

We have just currently built a system at the Glick Eye Institute and at the adjacent green space between Fessler and Glick that employs a storm water detentions system. This detention system is connected to a drip irrigation system that will provide water to the immediate grounds. Since this is new to our system the system is completing commissioning and data is still being collected on its effectiveness although there was significant positive affect in areas this summer during the drought.

There is another rainwater system currently being built at the SELB project site at IUPUI.
