Spring Break Water Conservation Efforts
Over spring break, facilities upgraded water fixtures to reduce water consumption. In Yarrow Hall, 250 toilet retrofits were upgraded from 1.6 gallons per minute (gpm) to 1.28gpm; in Avocet, 75 showerheads were changed from 5gpm to 2.5gpm and in Sanderling 75 aerators were changed from 2.2gpm to 1.0gpm. Materials for the retrofit were provided by Marina Coast Water District and installed by CSUMB facilities. These retrofits will be monitored to evaluate the overall water savings and during the summer additional retrofits will be done.
