Second meeting: Water

Thank you for a successful second meeting discussing water usage on campus.

Some of the highlights:

  • Introduction of a ‘water footprint’ as a parallel to the ‘carbon footprint’
  • Bottled water is banned at HSPH – how can we make this happen at the other schools?
  • Both ‘Flow‘ and ‘Tapped‘ will be shown on campus this semester – stay tuned for more details
  • Most effective water savings will likely be through installation of smart irrigation systems

Please see the minutes (updated) here.

The HES presentation on water can be found here.

Additionally, we were joined by Jaclyn Olsen from the Office for Sustainability. Her presentation will be up shortly.
