(Corvallis, OR) -- Oregon State University is reducing the amount of water it uses in response to Governor Kate Brown's order directing state agencies to curtail nonessential water use. The order doesn't apply to OSU, but the school is taking steps at all of its campuses. Grass will be allowed to go dormant unless it's an area where a lot of people walk on it. Athletic fields will also be watered. Most buildings already have low flow faucets and toilets.
