Keen to be Green – Water conservation visits May 2023
Continuing to support our community centres to lead the way and drive forward the aims and objectives of the Keen to be Green facilities programme, implementing and maintaining Water Conservation measures was the focus in May. With a visit to each of the centres committed to Waste Management, Energy/Water Conservation and the aims and objectives of the Keen To Be Green Charter Sinead Fox the FCC Environmental Officer Awareness Officer has been completing water audits.
Whilst initial results are reassuring and it’s encouraging to see some centres embrace water conservation and use cost- effective measures to minimise wastage, display signage and promote drinking points within the centres, there were some centres where small tweaks such as reducing taps running times and prioritizing repairs could improve existing measures. Sinead will continue to work closely with the facilities team to collate the information gathered and identify priorities that will be fed back via the Keen to be Green working group.
