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

As described in the campus Climate Action Plan, UC San Diego is committed to reducing overall water consumption by 4% per year while increasing usage of reclaimed potable water, when possible. The campus has also committed to sub-metering 100% of buildings and landscaping for water usage. To accomplish these commitments, included in the Climate Action Plan are 14 action items ranging from water system retrofits to behavior change initiatives.
