Water Action Plan

The University of California is committed to achieving sustainable water systems. UC San Diego has demonstrated leadership in water conservation and water quality protection by implementing successful strategies, such as using recycled water instead of potable water for our Central Utility Plant cooling towers and irrigation in many parts of campus; installing efficient irrigation systems; capturing water for reuse; replacing turf with drought tolerant landscaping; and installing storm water treatment features throughout campus to improve water quality and protect downstream waterways.
