Water Action Plan

The ASCP has been working on finalizing our baseline data for our Water Action Plan to identify water conservation strategies on campus. We are aiming to complete the Water Action Plan by Fall 2019 and then set to work on tackling some of the identified strategies.

Stay tuned for more information on our plan.

 

Water Conservation

Steam Weed Killer

The ASCP is helping to fund a steam weed killer that will reduce herbicide use on campus. A joint proposal of the ASCP and AHEC Grounds, the steam weed killer will reduce our use of Glyphosate (RoundUp) by 50%! Glyphosate has been classified by the World Health Organization as "probably carcinogenic to humans," threatens the gut bacteria of pollinators (bees and butterflies) and leaches into our waterways during storm runoff. We will use the steam weed killer on flower beds, sidewalks, and mulched areas but will not be ideal for grass areas. While the tool does use water, it will only increase our water consumption by 0.0001-0.0002%.
