Motherhouse Campus Water Filtration System

15 Bottle Fill Stations | cost: $2,470 each
6 Drinking Water Stations for Dining Rooms/Kitchens | $730 each

TOTAL COST: $41,430

water station for campus

The city of Adrian provides safe drinking water but the process often leaves the water unpalatable. This causes a dilemma for the care facilities for our Sisters who need to keep well hydrated for health and well being. We researched several means to provide quality, fresh-tasting water for our campus. It was determined that well-placed water/bottle filling stations in the residential areas of the Maria, Regina and Weber buildings will provide our Sisters fresh-tasting water while also providing co-workers a means to refill their water bottles and eliminate the need for single use plastic bottled water.  

Water filtration systems in our dining rooms will also provide clear, fresh water to our Sisters, retreatants, visitors and co-workers.

Aerator & Windmill for Pond

1 needed | cost: $1,800  Provided! Thank you!

The Nature Area on campus, which includes a pond, is a wonderful place for Sisters and guests to visit to reflect, pray, view wildlife, and to simply enjoy the outdoors. The retention pond needs an aerator to oxygenate the water and promote healthy aquatic life. The windmill would provide a sustainable method of powering the aerator.
