1 UCSB Water Action Plan: Developing a Successful Template AASHE 2012 October 15, 2012 Matthew OCarroll & Briana Seapy University of California, Santa Barbara

2 Water Action Plan (WAP): Motivation Developing a Water Action Plan Defining Scope Documentation of Water Use at UCSB Data Collection Baseline to Benchmark Selection Methodology Identifying Key Practices & Trends in Water Conservation Suggesting Future Water Conservation Efforts Making Recommendations Using CBA and CEA Making Your WAP a Living Successful Document UCSB WAP Template Overview of Talk

3 University of California, Office of the President: Mandate UCSB Future Challenges: Campus growth, Increasing water rates, and Climate change Water Action Plan (WAP): Motivation

4 Magnitude of UCSB Role in the Region/Local Watershed Geographic Scope of Water Use Temporal Scope Water Scope Developing a WAP: Defining Scope

5 Data Collection: Quantitative and qualitative information on UCSBs water history (utilities statements, interviews, audits) Developing a WAP: Documentation of Water Use at UCSB

6 3-year Baseline (1996/ /1999) 3-year Benchmark (2008/ /2011) Purpose: to encourage UCSB to strive for further reductions Developing a WAP: Baseline to Benchmark Baseline to Benchmark % Reduction Total Potable Water 25% Potable Water/ WCU 43% Potable Water/ GSF 52%

7 Developing a WAP: Identifying Key Trends & Practices in Water Conservation Attributing potable water use reduction to past campus actions Irrigation: Potable to reclaimed Industrial: Expansion of chilled water loop Infrastructure Upgrades: Bathroom retrofits

8 Cost Benefit Analysis Suggesting Future Water Conservation Efforts Installation of a RF/NO System to treat waste and storm water for use on landscapes, in toilets, and as water to supplement cooling towers Potential Scenarios: Off-site system at local wastewater facility, centralized facility on- campus, decentralized filtration systems on- campus Collaboration between UCSB, Goleta Sanitary District, Goleta Water District WAP-G Recommendation using CBA Laying out all the costs and benefits in a way that predicts the economic value of water conservation efforts

9 Cost Effective Analysis Suggesting Future Water Conservation Efforts WAP-G Recommendations Bathroom/ shower retrofits Weather-based Irrigation Controllers Matched Precipitation (MP) Rotators Xeriscaping Design Scheduled Maintenance Meeting water savings targets using least cost intensive practices

10 Goal Setting Realistic goals that align with future campus plans (e.g. Long Range Development Plan) Reporting Annual or Bi-annual basis Collaboration Sharing ideas and the document itself with stakeholders and other universities A Living Successful Document

11 Background/ Introduction Overall Importance Regional Context Campus Physical Context Motivation Specific to Campus Definition of Scope (geographic, temporal, water) Campus Water Use Baselines Campus Historical Water Use & Reduction Process Campus Water Use Benchmark Recommendations & Strategies to Achieve Future Water Reduction Goals Financing Opportunities Conclusions & Future Steps UCSB Water Action Plan Template
