Schools use a tremendous amount of water everyday, and require water for their heating and cooling systems, restrooms, drinking water faucets, locker rooms, cafeteria, laboratories, and outdoor playing fields and lawns.
To reduce water use in the school, consider replacing old equipment such as dishwashers with energy-saving devices. Repair water leaks and leaky toilets. Install water aerators and automatic shut-off devices on faucets. Use low-flow shower heads and timer shut-off devices to reduce water use during showers. Install toilet dams on older models.
To reduce outdoor water use, maximize natural vegetative cover, and limit the amount of lawn area provided. Maintain playing fields using drought-tolerant grasses.

School buildings are usually ideal for rooftop rainwater harvesting – the big surface area and tiled roofs (or tin roofs) have the potential to collect vast quantities of rainwater. A series of rain water tanks can be installed below the eaves on each side of a long building or a series of underground water storage tanks could also be installed. Rainwater can be used for flushing toilets (and even for drinking if properly filtered) and rainwater has been proven to be much better for lawns and gardens compared to treated municipal water. The scholars will also see water conservation in action and take ideas home to make their families more aware of water conservation systems.
