My name is Sarah Boone and I am an alumna from the University of Washington and a current graduate student at the University of Oxford. I am writing now because I am conducting some exciting new research on water conservation in your area, and would like to invite residents in Columbia City to participate.
This research involves a short online survey (less than 10 min!) that looks at how a number of different factors influence our use and conservation of water. Research like this is important as it gives academics and policy-makers insight into how to manage our resources more sustainably and how to improve services in your community. This study meets the highest standards of ethics for participatory research as set by the University of Oxford. Also, all answers to the survey questions are completely anonymous. I have attached more information about myself and the study to this email if you would like to know more.
To participate in this study, you and your friends/neighbors can simply follow this public link:

After participating in this study, please feel free to share this link with others in your community. Thank you very much for supporting this important work! As a fellow Seattleite, I hope that through this research we can help improve decision-making about water and our stewardship of this precious resource.
Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments!
