In spring of 2010, UW-L Facilities Planning & Management and the Office of Residence Life partnered with students to choose a low flow showerhead to replace nearly 400 higher flow showerheads in all UW-L residence halls.
From our data collected, conservative estimates project a savings of over 14 million gallons of water per year, or about 5,280 gallons per resident. Cost savings annually from water, water softening and associated heating and sewer costs total approximately $147,000 per academic year.
