Water Use Goal: Jun 2015 - Feb 2016
In April 2015, Gov. Brown signed an executive order requiring communities to reduce potable water usage by at least 25 percent across the state. Specifically, UC Merced is required to reduce water usage by 25 percent as compared to water usage from June 2013 to February 2014. This amounts to a 20-million-gallon reduction or about 2.2 million gallons per month from June 2015 to February 2016.
