Use water efficient plumbing fixtures in all state buildings

Use water efficient plumbing fixtures in all state buildings

What problem does it solve? The state still uses plumbing fixtures that waste water. In order to set a good example of environmental stewardship, we need to practice what we preach. What is your solution and who does it apply to? The state needs a policy that mandates the use of plumbing fixtures with the WaterSense label when replacing older models. WaterSense-labeled products are certified to use at least 20 percent less water. See Such a pilot program can then be a model for the counties and municipalities to follow. The Governor's Office can even issue an executive order to mandate a similar policy for all places of public accommodation What is the anticipated impact? Implementation of such a policy will reduce water consumption over time. This is increasingly important as the earth's supply of water is becoming more scarce.
