How Low Can You Go?

When:

The average Tucsonan uses 80 gallons of water per day from the Central Arizona Project that transports water a long distance from the Colorado River. Join us at the Living Lab, our demonstration site, for this fun activity exploring the sytems we have in place to reduce our dependency on distant watersheds and that make it possible for us to exist on rainwater, stormwater, and greywater most of the time. You will also have the opportunity to think about what you might do in your own home, neighborhood, and work place.
