Free toilets a flush away
THE FOLLOWING was submitted by Allie Anderson, conservation coordinator for the city of Uvalde.
The city of Uvalde has received funding from the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) to conduct a water conservation program and will make 3,000 ultra high-efficiency Caroma brand toilets available for city water customers. Customers will be able to replace up to two pre-1992 high-water use toilets through the program. The new Caroma toilets have two levels of flush and average about 0.9 gallons of water per flush – that’s compared to the 3.5 to 5.6 gallons per flush of old fixtures. Despite their efficiency, the Caroma toilets have been very successful in performance competitions worldwide.
