    How to Conserve Water at School

     

    Indoors
     

    Report any leaky toilets, faucets, or drinking fountains

    Turn off the sink while soaping up your hands

    Do not let the tap run for a long time

    If you see a faucet that is dripping, turn it off

    Install faucet aerators

     

    Outdoors

     

    Mulch gardens to retain water

    Install rainwater tanks, and use the water collected

    Avoid sprinkler runoff - make sure the water falls on grass or gardens

    Replace plants that need a lot of water with native plants

    Water school lawn when it is cool and evaporation is low (morning or evening)

    Use a broom instead of a hose to clean sidewalks and driveways
