The Center for Sustainable Living, a LEED Gold special interest residence hall, employs grey water from the showers and bathroom sinks to flush commodes. Rain barrels also capture roof runoff to be used for the irrigation of flower and vegetable beds around the house. Our Organic Farm utilizes an irrigation pond that not only captures rainfall but also runoff from the barn roof.
