Director of Facility Management
Does the institution use non-potable water (e.g., harvested rainwater or graywater) for irrigation and/or other applications?:
A brief description of the source of non-potable water and how it is used:
The College's Greenhouse and Landscape Construction shop has two applications for non-potable water use.
Rainwater is collected from the roofs of the conventional greenhouse and the landscape shop and is stored in a 3000 gallon underground storage tank. This water is used to water the plants in the greenhouses.
Greywater is collected from the floors in the storage garage and greenhouses and stores in two underground tanks. Greywater is filtered and used to water plants in the greenhouse.
