景观灌溉养护措施

 

For more than a decade, 威廉希尔安卓客户端下载联合高中区 has been a leader in water conservation.  早期采用再生水进行景观灌溉, the District has diverted the use of potable water for irrigation by 30% annually, 每年节约6700万加仑的饮用水, 利用再生水进行景观灌溉. 山, 常绿谷, 银溪 and 耶尔巴布埃纳岛 High 学校.

 

2014年初,威廉希尔ios客户端 灌溉用水减少20%.  威廉希尔ios客户端削碎树枝,把它们作为覆盖物, thus reducing the amount of organic material entering the waste stream as well as reducing soil moisture loss through evaporation.

 
威廉希尔安卓客户端下载's facilities design standards for new construction and rehabilitated landscapes are compliant with water efficient landscaping 议会第1881(2006)号条例草案规定的规定.
 

人工草皮

 
The District has converted all 11 of our football fields to synthetic turf.  There are many positive environmental benefits of this initiative:  the use of harmful pesticides and fertilizers has been eliminated, as well as elimination of polluted stormwater runoff; the elimination of noxious emissions from gas powered lawn mowers; the elimination of grass clippings, which is the third largest component of municipal solid waste in landfills; and the conservation of 75 million gallons of water annually for irrigation of those fields.  在这个过程中, 特区省下了243多美元,在避免使用的水里,每年的花费是000美元, 化工费, and the fields are available for play across all hours of the day and in all weather conditions.

游泳池

 

California Department of Education requires aquatics instruction as part of the eight required content areas of high school physical education. 威廉希尔安卓客户端下载 has eleven swimming pool sites (located at each comprehensive high school campus). 如果威廉希尔ios客户端从一个空的状态补充威廉希尔ios客户端的池子, 单次补水的水量只有1.每年用水量的6%. 威廉希尔ios客户端一般不会把泳池的水放干或填满, only upon extenuating circumstances as required for health and safety purposes.

 
水的蒸发取决于水池的表面积, 水温及空气温度, 相对湿度和风. Water evaporation is much greater in the early Spring and late Fall than in the Summer - when water temperatures are high and air temperatures are cold (especially at night).  不使用的时候,威廉希尔ios客户端把池子盖上, to defend against water evaporation; prevention of water evaporation also protects the heating energy and chemical treatment investments associated with that water.
 

遵守干旱规例
