Mesa to Improve Water Efficiency in City Buildings

Mesa Saving Water Log
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.


The WaterSense label can be found when purchasing  toilets,WaterSense label 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 EPA 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 Ed Charles or learn more about Mesa's water conservation programs.
