In April 2008, Whitmore Lake Public Schools celebrated Whitmore Lake High School’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification presented by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Specific features of the new school that helped to achieve the points necessary for LEED certification include: a geothermal heating and cooling system and extensive energy recovery units; waterless urinals and metered faucets (reducing water consumption by about 20%); use of linoleum and other biodegradable materials throughout the building; use of locally produced products (within a 500 mile radius); construction waste recycling (84%); use of recycled products and use of “green” cleaning products throughout the building.
