Carroll Senior High has partnered with MeterHero, Tarrant Regional Water District, and the City of Southlake to teach students the importance of saving water and how they can measure water consumption in their residences.
Recently, Public Works’ Environmental and Regulatory Supervisor Madisson Dunn and representatives from the Tarrant Regional Water District presented to a group of senior students on MeterHero, a program designed to teach people how to gauge their water usage levels, how to properly conduct meter readings, and how they can implement innovative solutions to reduce high water use in their households.
Approximately 193 students will be participating in this program this spring. They will be using EyeOnWater to review and analyze their water usage patterns. EyeOnWater is an application that connects with your local water utility account(s) and lets you know how much water is being used in your household. Through this service, these students can use the tools provided on the website to check for any detected leaks on their property, their current home meter readings, and the historical consumption data for their residences.
“It’s wise to assume that water usage levels will continue to increase as the number of residents expands. And it’s never been a better time to start teaching young adults about the importance of conserving water and participating in sustainability efforts,” said Dunn.
Dunn also noted that by participating in MeterHero, these students would have the opportunity to see their patterns of water use and enact definitive changes within their households. These changes, however small, can go a long way.
