Water Conservation & Storm Water Management

While the individual actions and choices of students make a huge difference in water conservation, having the right infrastructure in place is important too.

Rooftop gardens at Garden Village.

  • Low- flow toilets, faucets, and showers are standard throughout RSSP.
  • Vegetated bioswale systems at University Village & Clark Kerr Campus are incorporated into the landscaping around the buildings.
  • A low-pressure, gas-fired steam boiler plan supports the entire Clark Kerr Campus, saving significant amounts of water & energy.
  • Drought tolerant landscaping is prioritized across RSSP whenever possible.
