Lakewood Honored for Water Savings

The City of Lakewood recently honored Lakewood High School for saving 178 million gallons of water since 1991. The water savings, about a 16 percent reduction, were achieved through a combination of conservation efforts and the use of reclaimed water for irrigation.

Saving water saves money, with the school district paying about half-price per gallon on most consumption due to the use of reclaimed water for irrigation.
