Drury University, City Utilities of Springfield, and the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks have teamed up for a multi-step water conservation initiative on the Drury Campus. Through grant funding, the Wateshed Committee purchased a large quantity of water conserving devices like sink aerators, low flow showerheads, leak detecting tablets and shower timers. Over the summer, many of these devices were installed in buildings on Drury campus. Drury also sponsored the Watershed Committee to host a booth at the new student involvement fair on August 24, 2009. Later this fall, the Watershed Committee plans to work with students and faculty to create a water conservation competition. To help tell this story and see how effective the programs are, Drury and City Utilities of Springfield will be working to record how much water is saved. We are looking foward to making a difference-and measuring it!
