Middle Georgia State University believes that every drop of water is important. With that in mind, we have incorporated our lake into MGA’s Stormwater management system. The Stormwater is captured using the lake, but the captured Stormwater is not returned into creeks, instead it is used for irrigation, toilet flushing and other non-potable water uses. Thus preventing untreated Stormwater from flowing into the nearest waterway and potentially harming ecosystems, while saving the university money in energy cost and water usage. You can help too by taking simple steps to preserve our precious water supply:
- Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and washing your hands.
- Collect rain for watering plants
- Don’t use running water to clean. Instead, fill a bucket with water and cleaner.
- Take shorter showers
