Southeast Community College
is making every effort possible to conserve water on its campuses. Lincoln Mayor Chris
Beutler issued a mandatory water restriction for the city of Lincoln due to
wellfield power losses and potential depletion of the water supply.
In Lincoln, the
Physical Plant, Café, Culinary, Child Development Center, and others are doing
as much as possible to reduce water usage, said Bev Cummins, vice president for
student affairs and Lincoln Campus director.
“We thank all of
our students, staff and faculty in responding and doing everything possible to
restrict water usage both on our SCC campuses and in our homes,” Cummins said.
Here are initial steps SCC is taking until water restrictions are
- Use disposable dishes and
utensils in the Child Development Center and Cafe.
- No fleet
vehicles will be washed.
will be done only when vitally necessary.
will minimize mopping and use sanitizing products instead
- No use of
the showers at the Entrepreneurship Center.
- Water and ice machines will
still run, but everyone has been asked to limit use.
- Do not run faucets
unnecessarily, but continue sanitary practices.
