Clean water is a finite natural resource. Even Tasmania, with an apparent wealth of freshwater, goes through drought periods, which see significant drops in water storage in its vast lakes and waterways. Furthermore, using water requires energy to process, pump, heat, re-pump, and re-process it.
The University has water harvesting and water efficiency infrastructure currently in place across its three campuses (e.g., rainwater tanks, dual-flush toilets, and water efficient fittings) and has been installing water-efficient fittings in all new buildings since 2009. Water consumption was approximately 211,00 kL in 2016 (the equivalent of around 10 kL per student).
