CU Boulder may put timer on dorm showers

BOULDER, Colo.Long showers could be a thing of the past at one University of Colorado dorm teaching students green habits.

University officials are considering installing shower timers that would either shut off or give students warnings about the amount of time they've spent using water. The university says it could test the timers at the Baker Hall dormitory, where several students are already taking a course on environmental sciences.

CU officials say they will decide next month what kind of device would be equipped on the showers. One option would be to reduce water pressure after a certain time, or shut the water off completely after five or 10 minutes. Students would have to wait for a period of time before being able to turn on the shower again.
