UGA to Decrease Water Use

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) _ The University of Georgia is scheduled to release a report today with suggestions on how the school can save water during the state's drought.

The Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission already has stipulated that new state buildings, including those at the university, must be constructed with built-in water-saving features.

The commission also says every new building must have features that will cut water use by 10 percent to 20 percent.

Danny Sniff is associate vice president for facilities planning. He says the water-conservation features could add up to big savings, as much as a third of the university's total water use. He says many buildings that have been recently constructed include water-saving features.
