School Water Conservation Guide

School Water Conservation Guide

Water is a scarce resource. Taking care of our limited water supplies, and the ecosystems that depend on them, is key to responsible environmental stewardship. The SEI School Water Conservation Guide contains the information and tools necessary to establish a Green Team, determine a baseline for historic or current water use, develop a plan for reducing water consumption, implement water use reduction measures and projects, and finally, verify reduction results. The guide identifies important materials and preparation tasks to aid in assessing your school’s potential for water conservation projects and strategies. The guide also provides resources for completing greywater installation projects, building a rainwater catchment system, and employing water-wise landscaping techniques. Ultimately, these projects create the opportunity for students and staff to learn more about water conservation and can have significant positive impacts on school operating costs as well as the environment.
