Water Conservation



SDCCD is actively conserving and monitoring water consumption and practicing effective storm water management.  By using waterless and low-flow fixtures, water consumption is reduced by approximately 40% compared to buildings using standard fixtures. 

The use of high-efficiency irrigation and drought-tolerant landscaping has reduced the consumption of water for irrigation by hundreds of thousands of gallons annually, far exceeding the City’s mandates for water conservation. At Miramar College, reclaimed water is used for irrigation and for flushing toilets.
