OP-26: Water Use
This credit is weighted more heavily for institutions located in areas of water stress and scarcity and less heavily for institutions in areas with relative water abundance. The points available for this credit are determined by the level of ”Physical Risk QUANTITY” for the institution’s main campus,, as indicated by the World Resources Institute’s Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas and detailed in the following table:
This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.
Water use data is unavailable for the Castlegar campus. Castlegar has two systems that supply water and one metre. The college often switches between the two water systems, so any metre data would be incomplete. A usage figure cannot be estimated based on billing totals because water is not paid for by use in Castlegar.
According to the World Resources Institute's "Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas", Castlegar's overall water risk is considered to be Low.
