Teach the Teacher
We use far more water than you might think. Irrigation, bathrooms, drinking water, kitchen operations. All use water.
Now assume that you could capture and treat rainwater to service all those needs.
Calculate the entire collection potential of the buildings on your campus. Assuming average rainfall for your region, would it yield enough to service all the needs of your school?
Interview the facilities director at your school to determine total water use and to secure estimated dimensions for rooftops.
