Staff, students continue water conservation success

Silman

Biology professor Miles Silman makes his conservation pledge.

Out of a field of 125 colleges and universities, Wake Forest students placed in the top five in fresh water savings for the second year in a row during the 2015 Campus Conservation Nationals competition.

Campus Conservation Nationals is a nationwide, three-week effort among institutions of higher learning to conserve electricity and water.

From Feb. 9 to March 1, Wake Forest students competed to achieve the greatest reductions in their residence halls in electricity and water consumption. Due to extremely cold weather conditions, Wake Forest was unable to place in the top 10 in electricity reduction like last year. However, the cold weather did not stop their efforts with water usage. Students saved over 37,000 gallons of water during the competition window.
