As new buildings or major construction projects are built, water conservation is considered.

Water-conserving fixtures, such as low-flow toilets and aerators for faucets, are being installed.

In addition, storm water flow may be captured for reuse in irrigation such as at the UIC Forum. Buildings that have been constructed over the past six years have been landscaped with native and hardy plants that do not require irrigation.

Please report leaky faucets or running toilets to Facilities Management.
