Drought Emergency and Water Conservation

Drought Emergency and Water Conservation

To reiterate the message from the Center for Sustainability, Governor Brown declared a drought emergency in California and has asked all Californians to reduce water consumption by 20%.  The drought conditions threaten communities across the state, particularly in agricultural areas. To that end I encourage all of us to do our part to cut back where we can in the office and at home.

The Center for Sustainability and our Facilities department have done a great job in the past of leading Santa Clara University in reducing water usage on campus. To learn more about our campus efforts, click here.  For tips on reducing water consumption click here.
