Southface Trainings in the Virgin Islands

In June, our own Steve Herzlieb traveled down to the US Virgin Islands to deliver some training at the University of the Virgin Islands.

In this one, the class discovered a malfunctioning toilet, which was wasting water at a rate of approximately 2,160 gallons of water a day or 788,400 gallons per year.
