University of Texas – Health Science Center
With funds from the Environmental Service Fee, the Office of Sustainability through Facilities Management purchased 12 water stations. The stations provide cold, filtered water to a refillable bottle in a quick and convenient way. The purpose of the stations is to minimize plastic bottle waste and promote healthy and sustainable practices.
The CBH building on campus utilizes an HVAC mechanical system that incorporates four 60,000 cfm air handling units and a cooling capacity of 1750 tons. Until early 2012, the condensate from these units would drain into the sewer. Facilities Management installed an air handling unit (AHU) condensate catch tank and pumping system in order to reuse the water.
