University Water Use
Water consumption is apparent in terms of taps, toilets, and catering, individually these operations use small volumes of water. When these actions are multiplied up by the number of users, presently over 3,000 staff and 13,000 students the overall result is that the University is a large user and is classified as such by Scottish Water.
To give an idea of scale...
The amount of water used by the University per year is equivalent in volume to 6 times the MacRobert Building.
Figures for the University Halls of Residences show huge amounts of water being used per person per day:
|Place||Use per person per day (litres)|
|Crombie Johnston Halls||249|
|Developing Countries Average||70|
|Developed Countries Average||131|
