Water Performance

Annual Water Consumption

The stacked bar chart displayed on this page shows our annual water consumption in kilolitres (kL)  for the years 2010 to 2016. Each year's consumption data are divided into the following different water sources: municipal water supply, surface water, rainwater collected and waste water from another organisation.

The chart highlights that water consumption has increased since 2013 and that the majority of the university's water consumption is via the municipal water supply. Metering of surface water use was implemented in 2016.
