The Problem

Our wish is to create a solution for the on-going drought in the State of California. It will not solve the drought, but it will make us more efficient with water by saving the water that's constantly being created through condensation of air conditioners. We will route that water from the roof of our science building to the farm on campus for agriculture and livestock.

Our Plan

Our project will capture the water that is created every day that the air conditioners are functioning on our campus. We will capture this water and route it to the farm on campus through PVC pipes into a trough for the the goats and other animals to drink. Excess water will be routed to the gardens on the farm where various vegetables are grown throughout the year.
