Cascadia Consulting Group: Waterwaste Survey

Ankush Puri, an undergraduate senior in the Program on the Environment, is working with Cascadia Consulting Group on their wastewater education campaign for their capstone project (which is a 3-quarter course series including an internship with a partner organization, scholarly study in producing an academic report, and poster presentation at the Capstone Symposium).

They would like you all to fill out a five-minute survey that will help Seattle Public Utilities – your waste and sewer services provider – better understand disposal preferences and practices among the university community.

We realize this survey asks personal, and sometimes awkward questions. By answering, you are helping Seattle Public Utilities recognize practices that could impact Seattle sewer services. Your responses to the survey questions are intended to be anonymous.

Below is a link to take the survey online. Please respond before November 30, 2018.

Recipients of this survey can receive a free Chinook Book mobile app coupon code. Up to 300 codes are available. Chinook Book provides discounts and offers from a carefully-selected community of local businesses who are committed to environmental and socially responsible business practices.
