The national water company has enrolled 2,000 Vigilantes del Agua to report leaks and to encourage reducing use of water at their schools.
The students came from 50 schools. Their job is to return to the schools and share what they learned in the seminars with the Instituto Nacional de Acueductos y Alcantarillados.
The water company noted that a single school, Escuela Miguel Obregón en Tibás, reduced water use nearly 200,000 liters a month. The Ministerio de Educación Pública also sponsors the program.
