When I was younger I experienced a hurricane named Juliet which devastated my town leaving many people without basic needs such as shelter and water. My house had a medium size water tank but since we didn’t know how long we would be disconnected from the main water supply, we were very cautious with how we used our water. Our cooking, bathing and cleaning habits changed in order to conserve. I learned how important it was to conserve water and what it felt like to need a scarce resource.

We are a faction of the Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) that will produce simulated water bills that will inform and educate on-campus apartment residents at UC Santa Cruz about their monthly water use and will encourage smarter water-use and conservation through a reduction competition.
