RMS Encourages Water Conservation

Water DropWater conservation is on everybody's mind these days and USD 407 and Ruppenthal Middle School are trying to educate students about helpful conservation practices.

Recently, educators at RMS handed out kits to each student that included a five-minute shower timer, toilet tabs, a toilet tummy and a water wheel - all devices to conserve daily water use.

These kits were purchased through a grant from the Russell County Area Community Foundation.

For more information, contact Sara Krug at RMS.
