Annual Water Consumption

A graph of annual water consumption from 2010-2017The stacked bar chart displayed on this page shows our annual water consumption in kilolitres (kL)  for the years 2010 to 2017. 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 increased until 2015 prior to reducing in 2016 and 2017. The majority of the university's water consumption is via the municipal water supply. Metering of surface water use was implemented in 2016. Rainwater collected is estimated because rainwater consumption is not currently metered.
