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

The Ithaca College Comprehensive Environmental Policy includes a section on the responsible use of College resources, including water:

III. Efficient Use and Conservation of Energy, Water, and Other Resources. The College recognizes the importance of conservation efforts and efficient use of resources as the primary methods for reducing resource consumption.

A. The College commits to minimizing the consumption of energy, water, and other resources by eliminating wasteful practices and promoting efficient use.

We do not have figures for 2005 baseline water/sewer. The earliest figures available were from 2008: 138,065,618 gallons. The campus has grown 2% in population since 2005, but we estimate that aggressive water-saving measures being implemented since 2005 would have reduced the amount of water consumed substantially. So we used the figure of 135,000,000 for baseline reporting purposes.
