Water Conservation

UMBC is consistently working to increase conservation efforts related to our resources. When it comes to water, UMBC uses the following strategies:

  • low flow plumbing fixtures
  • smart, programmable, irrigation controls
  • moisture sensors coupled with the irrigation controls
  • A rainwater cistern to collect and reuse rainwater

Thanks to various water efficiency measures, the physical footprint of the campus has grown while the water footprint has decreased!
