ACU is one of one of Australia’s most water-efficient universities and it remains committed to twice the level of water-efficiency of the Australian University sector. ACU has over 550,000 litres of water-tank capacity in use at our campuses, and another 140,000 litres of storage capacity under construction or planned.
All campuses have installed a range of water efficient appliances, such as low-flow shower-heads, waterless or low-flow urinals, dual flush toilets and drip irrigation.
The Campus facility management teams have rigorous maintenance regimes to identify and fix faulty and leaking water pipes and appliances.
Many of our campuses save water by planting drought tolerant plants and not watering the campus ground.
