  • Regional Water Stress:  The Somerset area currently faces medium-to-high water stress, which is projected to increase in the next decade
Water Risk and Use Now 2030 Projection 2040 Projection
Regional Water Stress Medium to High High High
CyrusOne Water Use WUE 1.78 L/kWh

This facility is a legacy site that doesn’t use CyrusOne’s Zero Water Consumption Cooling so it consumes water like most data centers, but we are examining opportunities for reducing water use at this facility. (Risk assessment and projections based on WRI Aqueduct Tool)
