What BU is doing

BU is continuously identifying ways to save water throughout the campus. Here are just a few:

  • Harvest rain water for landscape irrigation
  • Install rain sensors on irrigation systems
  • Use drip irrigation systems in planting beds
  • Install self-charging, hands-free sink faucets
  • Install dual-flush and sensor-based toilets
  • Eliminate dining hall trays

Be part of the solution

  • Set a timer for your showers to be mindful of water use
  • Replace plumbing fixtures at home with low-flow fixtures
  • When gardening, use a rainwater barrel, drip irrigation, and replace lawns with native plants and rain gardens
  • Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth and washing your face
  • Only run dishwashers and washing machines when you have a full load
