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:

The system is currently installed at NMSU’s Fabian Garcia Science Center family residence where it will be used to irrigate a portion of the adjacent university arboretum. Currently the system fits inside a small, inconspicuous shed outside of the house. Future models may be small enough to fit inside a decorative landscape rock.

Because of New Mexico water regulations, the water from the system can only be delivered by a subsurface, drip irrigation system. Goss’ group will install drip irrigation at the location over the spring semester.
