Does the institution use non-potable water (e.g., harvested rainwater or graywater) for irrigation and/or other applications?:
Yes

A brief description of the source of non-potable water and how it is used:

Through the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund (SCIF), two campus rain gardens have been constructed since 2010. "Students designed and constructed a bio-retention garden featuring
drought-resistant, native plant species, which will pool rain water, store it underground and re-channel it for better use to help alleviate
the burden of the University’s current irrigation system."--quoted from SCIF annual report.
