Being environmentally responsible and adhering to sustainable
practices are important lessons to teach our students, and
leading by example is the best way to do it.
Being environmentally responsible and adhering to sustainable practices are important lessons to teach our students, and leading by example is the best way to do it. CNUSD's team of irrigation technicians strive to improve the presentation of our landscaping and grounds while reducing water consumption. Irrigation technicians install water conserving sprinkler heads and time clocks to reduce waste. Additionally, plumbers replace and support water conserving toilets and standard (wet) urinals with waterless urinals to save an average of 40,000 gallons of water per year.
The Corona-Norco Unified School District continues to partner with The City of Corona and the City of Norco to ensure we are doing our part to be environmentally responsible. The City of Corona's water conservation program promotes ways to reduce water consumption and high water bills. CNUSD is also utilizing the City of Corona's Recycled Water System to irrigate numerous schools throughout our District.
High school stadiums within CNUSD have been outfitted with synthetic turf to save a minimum of 80% water usage while maximizing student safety and promoting peak athletic performance. School sites within CNUSD which support community field use by team sports such as AYSO and other City leagues will have some flexibility to water at varying times of the week to maintain safe and playable conditions for our students and the community as fields with heavy use may require more water. CNUSD is dedicated to doing our part and finding new ways to conserve water as water levels in the State of California are getting lower everyday.
