Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study investigating the best way to approach irrigation management and water conservation in an institutional setting and to determine if a water conservation program should be pursued in the Granite School District in Utah. States the goals of the study were to examine "1) three water conservation approaches and determine which is most effective in achieving water savings in a public institutional setting and 2) water use at some elementary schools and quantify the potential water savings" and lists the conservation treatments: "1) an education program where managers - school custodians - were educated on water conservation and given evapotranspiration (ET) based water schedules to use; 2) a prescribed program ET-based water schedule provided without the education program; and 3) a directive where custodians were told by supervisors to conserve water with no further resources." Concludes the average school in the Granite School District does not over-water and a district-wide water conservation program would not be economical and that water conservation programs in an institutional environment must be flexible and carefully established to have the most participation by the landscape managers.
