Sustainability Features

Low-flow faucet attachments in all sinks in locker rooms and restrooms. These new devices disperse just 1 gallon/minute, as compared to the original that dispersed 2.2 gallon/minute. The RWC replaced the original showerheads with low-flow showerheads in all of the showers in the men's and women's locker rooms.

When the maintenance staff washes the RWC vehicles and equipment, the waste water (which may contain oils, greases, and fuels) is seperated from water. This is to ensure that harmful products are not washing away into the storm water system or into the ground.

There are over 20 outdoor recycling bins located throughout the turf fields, Sport Club fields, the William E. and Mary Jo Davis Recreation Area at Lake Claire, the Challenge Course, Leisure Pool, Tennis Courts and Sand Volleyball Courts. Along with smaller indoor recycling bins, the RWC has two larger recycling centers (one on each floor). Each professional staff office has a deskslider recycling box which promotes increased individual staff recycling.

LEED

The RWC has committed to meet LEED Silver Certification for the RWC Expansion. We are in the on-going process of retro-fitting energy efficient lighting throughout the building and our outside facilities. The RWC has also made it available for students to turn on and off the lights of the Outdoor Basketball Courts and two Volleyball Court facilities to decrease energy waste.

The installation of three artificial turf fields has eliminated use of fertilizer for the fields and has decreased the amount of water usage.
