Rancho Cucamonga 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.
Rancho Cucamonga High School’s unique terrain creates an appealing landscape. Concentrated improvements to planters and hardscapes have reduced the use of water. Areas of unnecessary landscape were identified and redesigned to further reduce the need for irrigation. Drip irrigation is installed in areas of new construction. The varsity football field has synthetic turf, and high flow irrigation nozzles have been replaced with matched precipitation rate nozzles. Water bottle filling stations are installed in strategic areas for convenient use of personal containers as well as the reduction of plastics. Rancho Cucamonga High School practices sustainability and wise use of our resources.
