Colony High School


The Chaffey Joint Union High School District has made tremendous progress in reducing its water usage. In 2016, the District was awarded the Drought Hero Award from the Cucamonga Valley Water District. The District also received the qualified Water Efficient Landscaper Certification with a partnership with the Chino Basin Water Conservation District. Ongoing strategies have been implemented District-Wide to reduce, reuse, and recycle water.
The progression of water sustainability at Colony High School is noteworthy. The installation of water bottle filling stations in high traffic areas promotes the use of personal containers and the reuse of plastics. The installation of low flow flushometer and waterless urinals in restroom facilities further reduces water usage. The use of reclaimed water to irrigate fields and increased mowing frequency generates deeper roots which promotes healthier turf. The use of mulch reduces evaporation and holds moisture in.
