The Boys and Girls Club of Sierra Vista is a pretty cool place. It is the first commercial building in Sierra Vista to not only preserve groundwater supplies, but ADDS water by using rainwater to flush toilets. How does it add water to the groundwater supply? Just like most other wastewater in Sierra Vista, the flushed rainwater from the Club goes to Sierra Vista’s Environmental Operations Park (EOP) for processing. At the EOP (located on Hwy 90 close to the San Pedro River), the wastewater is cleaned so well that it is recharged into the ground creating an underground “mound of water.” This mound of water slowly moves underground towards the San Pedro River eventually adding to the flow in the river.
On behalf of the Boys and Girls Club of Sierra Vista, I would like to sincerely thank you for the sponsorships and contributions you provided for first annual Radiothon held on February 28th, 2014. Thanks to your generous support, we were able to raise money for It Just Takes One, our annual campaign to make a lasting difference in the lives of the kids at the Boys and Girls Club.
