return to field list
Short nameWaterConsumption

The fields in this entity contain data about water consumption.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All higher education providers (HEPs).


The volume, measured in m3, of metered water consumed (exclude grey and recycled water), excluding usage within any commercial space. Where possible, data should be sub-divided to reflect the residential and non-residential estate. It is recognised that HEPs in Scotland will not be able to sub-divide Non-residential water consumption and Residential water consumption. Where this subdivision is not available, the Total water consumption should be provided.

Water metering and billing arrangements vary significantly throughout the UK. Some HEPs do not pay for water consumption by volume, especially for residential use. These HEPs may not be able to provide data on this issue. Others pay a combination of rateable value and metered water consumption.

Those HEPs that can provide data should use the following data sources:

  • water bills,
  • meter readings from all mains water meters.

Include water consumption for arable land.
