UConn Goes to Disposables Due to Drought

To deal with a severe drought in the area, Dining Services at the University of Connecticut will begin using disposable utensils to conserve warewashing water, reports the Hartford Courant. The school had progressed through first and second stage drought advisories over the summer is is now at the third stage of a four-stage process. The use of disposables will require extra costs but the dining department sees no alternative. Other steps taken by the school include asking students to reduce the length of showers and curtailing the watering of lawns.
