The following is from an email containing some great advice on saving water from Winthrop University's Associate Vice President for Facilities Management, Walter Hardin.
Dear Campus Community:
Yes, it's hot out there – and dry, too. (I'm hoping that just typing that will help
make it rain!) In fact, if you've just moved here, you may not know that the City of Rock
Hill has imposed water restrictions during this drought period. The obligation to
conserve water applies to campus residents, as well as our off-campus residents. Like
other institutional citizens, Winthrop already has worked out an authorized watering
schedule for parts of our property that require minimal watering, involving use of timed
sprinklers on a rotating basis. So while you may see some watering going on here on
virtually any day of the week, please know that is the approved plan.
Winthrop community members can help during this situation in other ways,
whether they reside on- or off-campus. Following are a few tips on how virtually anyone
can help conserve water, especially during a municipal restriction period. Please do your
part to help by making as many of these practices a part of your daily routine as possible:
As you can see, most of these steps require only minor adjustments individually, but
collectively, the Winthrop community can make a big difference in water consumption in
Rock Hill. Thanks in advance for your help.
