School Partners

Learning Gate Community School is partners with Dr. Daniel Yeh of the University of South Florida College of Engineering on a USGBC-sponsored project to study integrated building water management (IBWM).

For the project, detailed water usage data from the green classrooms will be collected and analyzed with the assistance of LG students and staff and used to facilitate the development of the IBWM model.

Tampa Bay, Florida's largest open-water estuary, stretches 398 square miles at high tide. Popular for sport and recreation, the bay also supports one of the world's most productive natural systems. Estuaries like Tampa Bay, where salt water from the sea and fresh water from rivers and uplands mix, are nurseries for young fish, shrimp, and crabs. More than 70 percent of all fish, shellfish, and crustaceans spend some critical stage of their development in these nearshore waters, protected from larger predators that swim the open sea.
