UAB Fin and Groundwater Collection

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

UAB Utilities recovers fin water from air handlers and groundwater from basements (both previously sent to the stormwater system) to use in the chilled water loop on campus. UAB adds collection locations each year. In 2015, we collected over 50 millions gallons of water. This reduced our demand for potable water to be used in industrial applications like cooling, and saved over $200K.
