Water Water
To reduce our water consumption we must first know how much we are currently using, and then discover and create ways to reduce that consumption.

Activity Ideas
School Water Audits
Conduct an audit of the water your school is using each month.
Rain Water Harvesting
Implement rainwater harvesting
Infrastructure Drip Audit
Check the faucets, water fountains, and all other water sources in your school to see if they are leaking or dripping. Ensure that your school fixes these leaks and drips. According to the USEPA, a leaky faucet that drips at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water each year.
Water Conservation Awareness Program
Develop a program to Promote Water Conservation at your school. Reveal the types of waste that are occuring and offer ways to solve the problem.
Calculate Water Footprint
Calculate your school's Water Footprint.
Student Proposals for Water Recycling Programs
Develop student proposals on water reduction and water recycling campaigns.
