Chi 2 Omega Water Conservation Project

Chi Omega Sorority

A series of water conservation retrofits at the Chi Omega Chapter house will bridge the 2010-2011 Year of Water and 2011-2012 Year of Games. Retrofits being installed at the Chi Omega house over the summer include low-flow faucet aerators and showerheads, dual flush toilets, and a rain barrel. In addition to the retrofits, Chi Omega will host a pledge-based conservation competition between the eight sororities on campus in conjunction with Fall 2011 Greek Week.

The water conservation retrofits will be installed over the winter break. Chi Omega hopes to tie their competition into the Year of Games.
