Berkeley FLOW, STeam’s newest project group, is focused on helping improve campus water conservation. We will accomplish this through education on more efficient ways of using water which will hopefully help us conserve water at an individual level. We will also work on raising awareness of current water conservation issues and the ways by which they affect us all. Longer term goals involve working with the administration to curb water wastage on a larger scale, hopefully through policies that will reduce water usage in the residence halls and around campus.
Project Co-Leaders: Rosalind Bump (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Serena Tam (email@example.com)
