Give yourself a pat on the back Aztec Recreation Members! We did it!!


Since the declaration of the California Drought, Aztec Recreation set a goal of using significantly less water these past few months and we did it! We crushed our goal of using 30% less; this May you helped us surpass our expectations of 49% less!

155,584 gallons May ’14

307,428 gallons May ’13

Due to members being more cautious by taking shorter showers, reporting water waste and reduced towel laundering we were able to reduce by almost 50%. We thank you for all you’re doing here on campus and at home to help conserve water.

 

 

This just proves every drop counts and so does every action to preserve it. Let’s keep this winning streak up throughout the school year!

California Drought 2014

CA_DROUGHT_BANNER-01

Governor Brown officially declared a California drought emergency on Friday, January 17, 2014 and ordered state agencies, led by the Department of General Services, to immediately implement water use reduction plans. Governor Brown also called for a STATEWIDE water conservation campaign to make all Californians aware of the drought and encourage personal actions to reduce water usage by 20 percent.

Associated Students is working to reduce water usage in all our programs and facilities by 20% immediately. That includes the ARC!

Aztecs help us reach our 20% water reduction goal.

How you can help:

  1. Take shorter showers
  2. Bring your own gym towel
  3. Report water waste to us. (For example: if you see a shower that leaks, let us know)

Thank You!

Water covers two-thirds of the surface of the Earth, but there is ONLY 0.002% fresh water on Earth.

Every little bit counts Aztecs. Let’s make a difference and let’s do our part.
