We continue to identify and explore strategies for dealing with the Metro Water problems caused by the flood. We are all incredibly grateful to our Plant Ops workers and Residence Life staff for their success in addressing toilet problems in many of our residence halls. In addition, Beaman remains open all night for student use through Monday.
While there has been modest improvement in the conservation efforts across the city, it remains a top priority to conserve water. As good community members, of both Belmont’s campus and the broader Nashville area, we can all do our part to contribute to our city’s recovery from the flood. Metro Water is asking every citizen to cut their water consumption in half. The water, which is safe, should be used for health and hygiene needs only.
In addition to our conservation efforts, Belmont has launched a new Web site to connect students, faculty and staff to additional resources to provide aid to our community. Individuals can find information for donating time, money and goods to benefit families who have experienced loss.
