Dear Jesus College, Oxford,

I am writing to request information regarding the amount of water used by the college to take care of its quads and lawns. I would like to know the amount of water (metres cubed or litres) used annually to care for and water the quads and lawns. I request this information for the past two financial years (2017-2018, 2018 - 2019). Furthermore, I would like to know the percentage of the water used which can be classified as grey water or which was the result of any rainwater irrigation projects.

Yours faithfully,

Kalli Dockrill

Dear Kalli
We do not have any data on water used for the lawns or planters.
A tank was installed in First Quad six years ago which takes water from part of the roof over the Hall and is used to water First Quad along with supply from the mains.
The second Quad and Principal's garden have no recycling facility and any water used comes from the mains.
Yours sincerely
Alexandra Lumbers
