To meet the demands of agriculture and a large body of students, faculty and staff, Clemson University consumes approximately 335 million gallons of water each year. This produces nearly 600,000 gallons of wastewater every day and near one million gallons of wastewater on football game days. Through a combination of efforts from departments such as dining, housing, utilities, agriculture and building projects, the sustainable use of water at Clemson University has been promoted and implemented in many daily activities. Examples include water-saving techniques such as water-efficient landscaping, low flow, and dual flush toilets, rainwater collection systems at various facilities on campus as well as tray-less dining and water-efficient appliances in the dining halls.
