Managing our water consumption

We measure and monitor our water usage in order to manage our consumption.

We’re working towards a 30% reduction in water use by 2020 (based on a 2009/10 baseline). Fixing leaks and fitting water efficient devices is helping us to meet this target.

Future provision

In the South of England demand for water is increasing – it’s expected that our changing climate will affect the availability of freshwater so it’s important that we’re working to reduce our water use. Projected changes in weather patterns also means there’ll be an increased chance of floods. Given the proximity of the Winchester School of Art to the River Itchen, we have a Flood Management Plan in place to reduce the impact to people, property and the environment.
