What We Do

The University's first chilled water plant opened in 1970 and was located in what is now Hospital Ramp 3. Today, the system has expanded to include four plants and three satellite chillers for a total capacity exceeding 40,000 tons. Chilled water is used primarily for air conditioning.

The University of Iowa's award-winning Energy Control Center (ECC) houses one of the most advanced and extensive Utilities tools available in a campus environment. The ECC, located in the University Services Building, serves as a centralized location for the monitoring, analysis, and forecasting of energy supply and consumption across campus.

Increasing the University of Iowa's sustainability has been a key objective of the university since Former President Sally Mason called for it to be a central priority on Earth Day 2008. President Harreld continued that vision when he took office, declaring sustainable practices to be "the most important issue of the 21st century." Facilities Management has a key role in developing sustainable practices for the university.

The University of Iowa is one of only a handful of universities that operates its own Water Plant.  In addition to providing a cost-effective source of water for the campus, it also serves as an important teaching facility for future engineers and water treatment specialists. The Water Plant functions as both a water source for the University of Iowa campus, hospitals and clinics, dorms and student/staff housing.
