### Global Problem

• Only 2.5% of the worlds water is freshwater

• Not all is accessible

• A lot of that water is wasted

Local Problem

• Too much water is being wasted through insufficient faucet heads

• 2.2 gallons of water per minute are being produced by the current faucets, and that is too much

To assess the problem

To generate a plan of action to solve the problem

Goal

### Aerators

• Aerators are a type of head that you can put on a faucet

• The Aerators combine air and water to conserve the average amount of water pouring out of the faucet.

### Mount View has 130 faucets…

…none of those 130 faucets are low flow

### Water Usage

• The main faucets are the bathrooms and there are 30

• The faucets at Mt. view produce 2.2 gallon/minute

• These aerators produce .5 gallons/minute

• After 2 minutes of running water a single faucet could save 1.162356 gallons

### Cost (\$)

• To buy aerators for the entire school at \$ 4.50 per aerator is \$ 585

• To buy aerators for only the main faucets (30 bathroom faucets) it would cost \$ 135

### Opinion

• We think that the aerators should be bought for all faucets in the school
