water conservation & recycling Maximizing Our Resources
Northwood Office significantly conserves water by using innovative water strategies.
Uses storm water management plan to reduce water pollution and remove pollutants from storm water runoff, eliminating 85% of total suspended solids within the soil on-site and preventing contamination in local drinking supplies or natural ecosystems
Storm water is captured and retained in detention ponds and then reused as irrigation water for landscaping around the area
Selects native and drought-resistant plants, a process known as xeriscaping, to further reduce the amount of water needed for irrigation

Uses sink aerators to reduce water usage by 80% at these fixtures
