Water Conservation

Located on the Otonabee River, water is a part of our campus life at Trent University.  Similar to looking at Trent's energy use, water conservation has opportuniteis both in the efficiency of our facilities and in the habits we form around water use.

Some water conservation projects that help keep Trent's water use low are:

  • library washroom renovations

  • Lady Eaton residence washroom renovations

  • On-going replacement of existing fixtures with lower consumption faucets, toilets and showerheads.

  • including low consumption fixtures in new buildings

  • minimal irrigation of grounds

  • native plantings of trees and herbaceous plants
