"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Does the institution use non-potable water (e.g., harvested rainwater or graywater) for irrigation and/or other applications?:

A brief description of the source of non-potable water and how it is used:

"The Cold Climate Housing Research Center uses approximately 1/6 of its roof space to catch summer rain. The water is gravity-fed into two 2500-gallon storage tanks in the basement of the facility. From this point the water is used to service the fire sprinkler system, and all toilets in the building. The collected water circulates through the sprinklers then to the toilets, essentially testing the sprinkler system with every flush." http://www.cchrc.org/rainwater-catchment-cchrc
