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

Purdue demonstrated its commitment to water use reduction in the 2010 Sustainability Strategic Plan. Goals related to water use reduction include:
Adopt maximum flush and flow requirements for all water‐using fixtures
Include an educational/behavioral change component to building water metering efforts by publicizing water usage data via the sustainability website
 Promote water conservation during Green Week
Work with students to perform water audits on a representative set of campus buildings to develop baselines for gauging water efficiency improvements over time
Develop and implement a cooling tower water management plan that results in optimal water efficiency and chemical usage
Continue to pilot and test water saving fixtures and devices
