Landscape and Grounds
Both the Boca Raton and Jupiter campuses are already in the forefront of water conservation by the use of re-use water for all irrigation needs. Irrigating with re-use water is an exceptional use of partially treated water, which would otherwise be sent into the South Florida water system. This saves millions of gallons of fresh (potable) water annually for human consumption / use.
An exciting new component of the irrigation program is the recent (2008) installation of an automated control system in the Athletics area of campus which allows the University to better control its irrigation water usage. The system, among other things, comes with a weather station that automatically adjusts the system to account for rainfall. This is now the standard system on all new building projects and will be expanded throughout the remainder of the campus, in phases, as funding allows. The Jupiter campus is already utilizing a similar control system throughout campus.
