This project aims to reduce the amount of water consumed by Worcester Polytechnic Institute through both behavioral and technological changes. To accomplish this goal the project analyzed the quantity of water used in order to identify likely water conserving opportunities. Through conducting a water audit, visual inspections of the current fixtures, and interviews with WPI’s facilities, the project was able to identify areas in the highest need of changes, and make suggestions to the institution based on the projects findings.
