Wilson K-8 School Water Audit

Tucson Water and Arizona Project WET at the University of Arizona worked with students at Wilson K-8 School for six years to conduct a school water audit. Starting with water use in the school bathrooms and moving to other uses like drinking fountains, the program provided hundreds of students with the opportunity to:

  • collect data.
  • install faucet aerators.
  • calculate water savings.
  • drive change in their school, home, and community.

The partnership of Tucson Water, the teachers and students at Wilson K-8 School, and the staff of Arizona Project WET saved the school more than two million gallons of water annually.
