Wild to Mild Water Harvesting "Open Houses"

Posted on 8th Jul 2014 22:10:37 in News


Mild to Wild Flyer

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.

Boys & Girls Club shaping a new future

Posted on 22nd Dec 2013 22:59:37 in News

Boys and Girls Club of Sierra Vista Executive Director Jarrett Croft and Deanna Coffman, club board president, speak about the need to renovate the facility to better accommodate the children.While the space of the Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista is 12,000 square feet, it is a warren of rooms and hallways which is not conducive to serving the children, said Jarrett Croft, the club’s executive director. But, it doesn’t mean changes cannot be made to make it better and that’s what he envisions.

“The structure we have is pushing our limits,” he said during interviews last week. But interior modifications can be made to make the space more open to better serve the children, Croft said, adding that does not mean there will not be specialized rooms.
