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

UC Davis has made a commitment to reduce per capita water consumption, relative to a baseline 3-year period. Despite significant growth, total campus water demands have dropped over 15% since the period of peak use in FY06-07. Many initial goals have already been achieved through implementation of best practices and several targeted water/energy projects. UC Davis is developing a Water Action Plan to outline future goals and plans for additional reductions.
