I think that is a very interesting topic. But looking at all of Atlanta may be a little too broad for the scope of this project. Can you narrow down that scope to a specific company or institution. How are you planning on researching this topic, what is the field activity that you are planning?

We can narrow it down by focusing on a large college campus, such as Georgia Tech, in an urban environment. We will focus mainly on the rain run off of water that floods the streets as it rains. We can then research a filtration system that will collect the water through the public sewer drains. It will send it through that filter to where it can be used in the buildings/structures around it.

It does make sense. Thanks. And we will start researching as soon as possible.

I think focusing on Georgia Tech is a wise idea. But don’t narrow yourselves down to a solution quite yet. I think focusing on recycling water and maximizing water usage is also a good focus. But let your idea about rain off, be that, just one idea for now. While your researching try and observe water usage in general on campus. This will give your team the ability to discover more potential opportunities. You could look at water usage in dorms and showers, or bathrooms, and find other possibilities for re-using & recycling water. Does that make sense?

Otherwise I think you guys have a strong topic area and should begin researching. Plan a few field activities and begin planning how you and your team can experience and observe water usage on campus.

I will make a category label for your group: Water Recycling & Reuse. Please check this category label every time your team uploads a post.
