Texas STEMs Greywater Tide

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) award goes to.... Valle Verde Early College, who won with their business plan for a company called Grey Water Solutions, that would use gray water recycling for city parks and home irrigation systems, took first place in the competition against 14 other regional finalists. The competition is sponsored by Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande, Bi-national Sustainability Laboratory, UTEP’s Colleges of Engineering and Business, Innovate El Paso, Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization, SCORE and Connect a Million Minds. Each member of the Valle Verde team received $400 and a trophy. Courage to believe, desire to achieve! Go Spartans!


  1. Todd,
    1,500 apartments in Ohio reduced their overall water use by 25% just by replacing the toilet flapper valves with a One2flush dual flush valve.

    Does saving more than 10 million gallons of water a year change the color of the water that's still used?

  2. Patrick:

    Saving 10 million gallons of water sounds like a conservative approach to cutting a water budget like Representative John A. Boehner is doing to our federal budget.

    So, that is defined as *Goldwater*. Sorry, not a new color of water.

    But thanks for reading the Rainbow Water Coalition.
