SMHS Conserves 500,000 Gallons of Water a Year Through Donation of Waterless Urinals

San Mateo High School (SMHS) is doing its part in water conservation. Students in the SMHS production of Urinetown and the AP Environmental Science program joined forces on a drought-related service project -- the donation and installation of 25 waterless urinals! Seventy-five students increased drought awareness through fervent fundraising efforts over the past six months. Thanks to Falcon Waterfree Technologies - the company that donated 25 waterfree urinals, SMHS will now use 500,000 less gallons of water per year! Photographed here is Abhaya Krishnan-Jha - member of San Mateo High's play Urinetown and of the incoming AP Environmental Science class. She is one of the students who collaborated and worked hard to make this project a reality! Thanks to the teachers and students alike who gave of their time and energy for water conservation!

Corina
took pictures of the wildlife on FMR for several months for her 20 Time Project.
