Millennium Fellowship Project: Georgia Tech Water Conservation
We are installing "smart" showerheads in the residence halls at Georgia Tech. These meters display the number of gallins being used per shower in addition to the temperature of the water. We are combinging this with an educational initiative to encourage residents to save water. The first step of our project is to run a small scale pilot program in one of the dorms before expanding to the entire university.
