Water is Precious

Reducing or eliminating the use of water is an evergreen focus for CloudHQ. We only use evaporative heat rejection where it allows us to conserve both land and energy.

In Ashburn, Virginia, our facilities that require the use of evaporative water for heat rejection will be served by grey water, a source of wastewater that is lightly treated and not fit for other use.

In Milan, Italy, our campus will use non-potable ground water and discharge excess to irrigation channels that serve nearby farmers’ fields, increasing the supply of water to sensitive land uses that would not have it otherwise while also reducing pressure on potable aquifers and overall energy consumption.
