Stan State Water System Continues to Sparkle

February 22, 2017


As a series of storms continues to pound California, Stan State’s water system not only is keeping the campus free of flooding, but also is storing water for the upcoming dry months. In the first three weeks of February, the University’s water system collected 9.9 million gallons of rainwater. Of that, 1.8 million gallons was sent to the campus’ lakes and ponds for storage, while the remaining 8.1 million gallons was pumped into the Turlock Irrigation District system. The heaviest day was Monday, Feb. 20, when more than 3 million gallons of rainwater was gathered. Of that amount, 760,000 gallons was pumped into campus storage and the rest pumped through the TID system.
