Mesa to Improve Water Efficiency in City Buildings
The City of Mesa is serious about keeping City facilities
efficient. Thanks in part to a grant from the Bureau of
Reclamation, water efficiency will be improved at
twenty City buildings. Inefficient toilets, urinals,
showerheads and aerators will be replaced in the next few months
with WaterSense labeled units.
WaterSense label can be found when purchasing toilets,
showerheads, faucets and more, and is an easy way for consumers
to identify water–efficient products that meet the Environmental
Protection Agency’s (EPA) criteria for efficiency and
performance. WaterSense labeled products use at least 20 percent
less water and perform as well as or better than standard
models. Replacing older 3.5 gallon toilets with WaterSense
labeled toilets can save an average household 13,000 gallons of
water each year. Visit
WaterSense for more information.
The project will take place from December 2013 through May
2014 and is expected to save more than 3-million gallons each
year. For more information, contact
