To achieve this ambitious goal, the Cal State East Bay has developed a conservation plan that consists of water monitoring accounting, as well as best management practices (BMP) for water management. Short term conservation measures are currently being implemented, such as:
Installing low flow toilets and faucets
Planting of native drought tolerant material
Reduced irrigation usage
Abandoning of turf areas
These and other conservation efforts will be necessary to not only address the impacts of the current drought, but to meet the demands of future campus growth and expansion of the university.
