26 Water at McGill: usage Water usage at McGill isn’t currently tracked by the City or the university So we don’t currently know how much we use, however McGill is developing a plan to measure our water consumption and evaluate how to reduce it. ©McGill University 2012

28 Water at McGill: conservation measures (i) Greywater systems Green rooftops Reducing bottled water on campus ©McGill University 2012

29 Water at McGill: conservation measures (ii) Water-saving fixtures Working to eliminate the use of water as a coolant in labs and ventilation systems Replacing some lawns with ground-covering plants that require less water ©McGill University 2012

31 Water at McGill: Bottled water McGill has eliminated the sale of bottled water in residence dining halls, and SSMU has eliminated it in the University Center. McGill encourages catering services and food establishments on campus to provide tap water instead of bottled. ©McGill University 2012

32 Water at McGill: BYOB and water fountains The university is making it easier to choose tap water. Watch for high-volume filling stations and retrofitted drinking fountains around campus that make it easier to fill water containers. In its first four months on campus, the BYOB water dispenser filled the equivalent of (500 ml) bottles of water. ©McGill University 2012

33 Exhibit status Launched! Currently on exhibit in the Redpath Museum: come and take a look! Poster versions to be discussed: may be easier to display in other buildings? ©McGill University 2012
