Annually, the University of Liverpool consumes over 300,000 litres of water from its halls of residences, catering areas, campus buildings and grounds; much of this ends up down the drain. With the recent hosepipe bans across the UK it is evident that water is a valuable commodity whose supply is at risk if not effectively managed. By implementing small behaviour changes water wastage would be minimised which would not only reduce costs but minimise its impact on the environment.  

This section provides you with information on why water is important, the impacts associated with its use, how these impacts can be managed, what the University is doing to manage its own water consumption as well as helpful facts and tips to help you can reduce your own water consumption at work.
