Water warriors at work

Posted on 17 April 2017

Welcome back to school! The Eco Warriors hope you had a great green Easter!

We have been very busy this year continuing our water saving work.

In term 4 of 2016, all the 3/4s took part in a water audit. The aim was to count and record how many water sources we have in our school. From our audit, we found that we have 12 water bubblers and 18 toilets. Some groups found different amounts so we used an estimate and calculated the average. We learnt that our water flow is between 6-9 liters/minute. We hope to conduct a water audit each year so that we can keep track of taps and water fixtures.

Last term, some of the Eco Warriors created a Water Action Plan where we brainstormed ways we can monitor and reduce our water usage.
