Aerator Program Offers Labs Significant Water Savings

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Laboratories can consume high amounts of water for washing and sanitizing glassware to meet environmental health and safety standards. Because many individual labs do not have uniform infrastructure the Water Planning and Stewardship team partnered with the Cardinal Green Labs program to offer a new program to encourage water conservation. Beginning in 2017, the partnership allows labs to receive aerator installations for free. More than 35 groups across campus have taken advantage of the program, which is expected to save over 190,000 gallons of water per year.
