Student initiatives launched from LEEDlab
Who are we?
CUA rain is a sustainable initiative that has positive environmental, social, and economical benefits for the The Catholic University of America. The project focuses on how rainwater can be most efficiently collected and redistributed for general use on campus. Started by CUA students Chris Bruno and Sam Mrozinski, the student-led and student-directed project encourages the university to be more conscious of its water consumption. The goal is simple: irrigate 100% of the campus with rainwater.
Our first step is to design and construct three custom water tanks. These will be stationed on the west side of the Architecture Building (Crough) on campus. Though we are providing the design and labor resources for the majority of the project, the process is not done. We need your support.
