Campus Ecology: Water

National Wildlife Federation

This website presents creative ways that college campuses are meeting the challenge of preserving or protecting water resources. Aging dormitory showerheads, inefficient decorative fountains, leaks in water mains, and improper disposal of lab chemicals all waste water or threaten the health of the local watershed. Methods used by universities can include cleaning up local wetlands, treating wastewater organically, or installing waterless toilets. The site has links to project summaries and information for doing your own campus project.
