WREC Water Conservation:

TOWEL SERVICE: The WREC is no longer offering towel service. The WREC encourages members who need a towel to bring one from home. Towels will be available to purchase for those who forget, but want one.
POOL COVERING: We will cover the pool each night to reduce water evaporation. Please understand this measure may raise the pool temperature a few degrees.
SHORTER SHOWERS: We encourage people to be aware of the amount of water they are using and shorten the length of their shower, or better yet, turn off the water when lathering.
OUTDOOR IRRIGATION: Facilities Management Services has oversight of the WREC's irrigation system in order to stay consistent with campus irrigation reduction plans.
