Transcript of SPLASH

SPLASH Shifting People's Landscaping and Saving H20. Water Is Often Wasted... Wyatt Hurt, Connor Dillon, Anqi Yu, and Dixie Poteet decided to do something about it. They Created an Advocacy Campaign Called: S.P.L.A.S.H.
(Shifting People's Landscaping and Saving H20) Journal Entry Quote (Wyatt Hurt): "Anqi, Connor, Dixie, and I met with Mr. Strouss and decided that we were going to focus on water conservation. We also decided that we were going to run an advocacy campaign and educate people on how to use water responsibly." Journal Entry Quote (Anqi Yu): "Water. As a part of mankind, we need it to
survive-but studies show that mankind may
also be contributing to its scarcity. 3% of all
water is fresh, and only 0.3% of that is easily
accessible. It would be so easy for all of it to disappear." Once they collected their information, they built a website. SPLASH contacted The Daily Sentinel, The Free Press, The Fruita Times, 92.3, 107.9, KJCT, KREX, and KKCO. The Free Press
ran ads like this. The Fruita Times wrote an article about the project and how to save water. KJCT aired these public service announcements (click to play). Journal Entry Quote (Wyatt Hurt): "Our BOW project has and will continue to be a
success. So far we have done research,
interviewed several people from the community,
contacted members of the local media, met with
those members, and are now putting our message
on the airwaves. We have also created a website
to help get our message out."

The river flow has been low since last year with an average flow rate of 13 cubic feet per second (cfs). So far this year, it has dropped to 9 cfs. Approximately eighty percent of last year’s water was substitution water--reservoir releases. That was what saved us last year, but it will be a rough year this year. And With Mr. Jones From The Redlands Irrigation District Solutions to the issues of local water can be narrowed down to having to develop a new mindset within the community. Understanding that there is a fine balance between the limited resource that water is and the ever-increasing population that feeds an ever-increasing demand is the premise for this mindset. Although most people will begin to preserve and conserve water as a resource once they are educated about this, there will always be people who choose to waste water. (20/80 rule.) This is why educating as many people as possible is imperative. They also met with Mr. Brown from U.S.G.S. and Mr. Brinkman from the D.R.I.P. Project. How Do We Know That It Worked?
(Well, we don't...) The S.P.L.A.S.H. project created an online survey to determine if the project worked. While no one responded, research and previous campaigns have proven that educating people about how they are using their water can save great amounts of it. Realistically, effects would be observed during the summer when water is more prone to overuse.
