Without a doubt, water is the key to life. We at HCC believe that preserving our water is integral to our success as a community, especially in a state like Florida. In 2014, we were able to save just over 9 million gallons of water, about 25% of our base year in 2009, by installing water conserving fixtures. We plan to continue making improvements to our systems and increasing our water savings.
Hydration stations have been installed at each of the campuses.
These stations promote the filling of reusable water bottles. Counters on the machines keep track of the number of disposable bottles that have been replaced by refills.
As of 2016, HCC users have replaced approximately half a million plastic disposable bottles!
