Campus surpasses goal in water conservation challenge

By IDS Reports

IU’s Million Gallon Challenge competition has already saved 7,346,565 gallons of water in three weeks, surpassing its original 1 million gallon goal.

So far, Campus View Apartments has saved the most, using almost 20 percent less water than usual. Eigenmann Hall, Briscoe Quad and McNutt Quad have each used at least 10 percent less.

The School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Student Recreational Sports Center, Cyclotron and Geological Sciences/Geologic Survey buildings have also saved about 10 percent.

“IU students, faculty and staff continue to demonstrate responsible stewardship of water resources,” Bill Brown, director of sustainability, said in a press release. “We are particularly pleased that our newest citizens in the residence halls are leading the way.”

The challenge began Sept. 1 and will last until Sunday.
