School buildings are usually ideal for rainwater harvesting systems and there is usually plenty of space for water tanks. This is a very practical and visual way of educating children about water conservation. Rain water tanks can save a school money by reducing water bills during the rainy season. The article below describes some other water saving tips that schools can adopt.
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.
EPA also offers assistance about ways to reduce health hazards in schools through its Tools for Schools and Toxic Free Schools Programs.
At the request of teachers for additional classroom activities related to ground water, the EPA Region 1 New England Office provided grants to the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission to develop classroom activity books for grades K-6 and 7-12. These books, entitled, “That Magnificent Ground Water Connection,” include background information for teachers and several student activities introducing water conservation principles.
To reduce outdoor water use, maximize natural vegetative cover, and limit the amount of lawn area provided. Maintain playing fields using drought-tolerant grasses. Other outdoor water tips follow:
School rooftops can collect vast quantities of rainwater so bigger tanks are called for – 10000 litre tanks, 15000 litre tanks and 20000 litre tanks would be ideal. Click on the links below to view the various JoJo water tanks and other high quality JoJo Tanks products available in South Africa.
