With the help of students, teachers and school staff, the Littoral Society recently wrapped up our Water Champions program with Anthony Rossi Elementary School.
The program has been ongoing since 2017 and has has involved teaching students at five South Jersey Schools about the importance of water conservation.
Saving water is critical for maintaining aquifers in coastal areas and surface water flows. So, as part of the Water Champions program we taught students how to conduct water audits at home, school, and local businesses to identify areas for improvement.
Using grant money provided by the Environmental Protection Agency, in partnership with New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, we installed high efficiency fixtures in the two restrooms at Rossi Elementary that student audits indicated had the greatest potential for water savings. Those audits calculated that these upgrades could save nearly 65,000 gallons of water per year!
“What a wonderful job done by all involved, especially the students who conducted the hands-on audits and calculated the numbers needed to get this grant going!” said Amber Egorov, the teacher we worked with at Rossi Elementary.
