Brown Is the New Green at Foothill

Foothill College continues to take action to ensure that we meet critical water conservation demands during California's record drought. Our campus achieved a 21.3-percent decrease in water usage—equal to more than 5 million gallons—last year*. Please help us conserve even more water on campus this year.

Additionally, Foothill was recently named a recipient of a 2015 Silicon Valley Water Conservation Award for its innovative instruction and conservation projects, which were made possible with funding from the Schmidt Family Foundation and 11th Hour Project.

Learn more about the college's conservation and sustainability efforts by reading our recently released sustainability management plan. For more water conservation tips, visit

*The 21.3-percent decrease referenced above applies to water usage in 2014 compared to 2013.
