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.
