Go Green Galloway to Focus on Water Conservation
Go Green Galloway will be offering a series of workshops and seminars for residents who are interested in learning different ways to use water more efficiently, both indoors and out.
These efforts will aid in our continuing goal to make Galloway a more sustainable community and in
recertifying our town as a Sustainable Jersey Silver community.
According to the USEPA, efficient water use can have major environmental, public health, and economic benefits by helping to improve water quality, maintain aquatic ecosystems, and protect drinking water resources.
While water is currently readily available on the east coast of the United States, our growing population will eventually begin to strain the resources that are now plentiful.
With the help of the Americorps New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors, there will be several practical workshops where residents can learn to craft and install their own rain barrels, design a rain garden using native plants, and install water efficient fixtures.
In addition to water conservation awareness there will be a focus on water quality in our area. Go Green Galloway
hopes to offer the opportunity for residents to become Volunteer Water Monitors through a water quality monitoring training.
Participating in Water Conservation education can help to
reduce your bills, improve water quality, and ensure that there are resources available for future generations!
