Water Conservation in Campus Buildings

The focus of the 2015 Water Action Research Team was to decrease water consumption in on-campus restrooms.  The team worked towards getting aerators installed on faucets across campus.  Aerators attach to faucet spouts to increase water pressure which decreases water usage.  The team found that over 10% of faucets at UCLA are in need of aerators and applied for funding to install them.
