How to Conserve Water at School


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


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
