|Water Wise School Competion|
As part of World Plumbing day, CIPH invites post secondary students from across the country to participate in the Most Water Wise School Case Competition. Form a team and use your knowledge of plumbing, technology, environmental science, economics and more, to influence real change on your campus. Participants receive feedback from industry and are eligible for prizes including a $3000 award for the winning team.
The winning team of Department of Earth and Environmental Science students Rachel Sank, Angelica Rice, Mark Bateman and Erik Cramer, developed green roof implementation plans by proposing to install a demonstration multifunctional water collection site. The concept will allow all precipitation (rain or snow melt) to be retained by a live green roof and re-used for an on-demand irrigation system for the school’s greenhouse.
