Water

Water is a precious resource that we cannot live without, but it is also a utility cost that is not related to educational enrichment. The more water your school uses, the more money flows away from learning. Naturally, there are necessary water uses on campus, but leaky pipes, faulty irrigation systems, and outdated, high-flow water fixtures are unnecessarily wasteful. For communities facing drought conditions, efforts to be “water wise” are tantamount to being a good neighbor, but for communities with ample fresh water supplies, such efforts may not be front-burner issues. Nonetheless, the Go Green Initiative embraces the old saying, “Waste not. Want not.” In order to preserve our fresh water, it is important not to waste it or introduce pollutants that cannot be removed.
