The article focuses on the action taken by Cookie Palmer, nutrition program director for the Hall County School System, to reduce the amount of water the department uses in its 34 schools in Georgia. She says they looked for ways water could be used twice. The biggest change they made was not using hoses to clean floors. Now they use buckets and mops. They have water in the sinks to wash and sanitize, but at the end of the day that water can be used to clean the floor.
