Innovation & Collaboration Are Keys to Campus Water Management
Thaler-Carter, Ruth E.
Facilities Manager, v29 n2 p18-23 Mar-Apr 2013
Water, water everywhere--managing and conserving water resources is a major factor at campuses worldwide. Doing so is a challenge, since water is one of the most-used and ubiquitous resources in any environment. Water is often taken for granted and not measured by the people who use it the most, yet it might have the greatest potential for helping facilities managers and sustainability coordinators improve usage and conservation. Campus facilities professionals are focusing on water use as part of larger concerns over sustainability, invoking innovation, and working with other departments, faculty, and students to make the best use of this essential natural resource. This article offers a few examples of how APPA institutions are making a difference in water use and conservation.
