A brief description of the plan of action to achieve water use reduction goals:

For all new construction projects we want to achieve a water reduction goal of up to 20-30 percent under LEED. Take the botanical gardens' 40 acres and move from potable water to gage canal water. By replacing 22 toilets as well as the toilets in our residential areas, we have an expected annual savings of over one million gallons of water a year.
