Optional Water Reclamation Tour

An optional tour of UCLA’s award winning water reclamation facilities will be offered at 3pm. Please indicate in your registration if you would like to attend.

UCLA’s water reclamation program saves 28 million gallons every year by capturing storm water, water used in laboratories, and reclaimed water from air conditioners and from sterilization and other equipment in 22 buildings across campus. This reclaimed water is then used to cool the campus cogeneration plant that provides efficient power to the university.
