Water-Saving Retrofit

Friday, October 1, 2021

Globally, 3.6 billion people live without access to safely managed sanitation or toilets. That’s over half the global population that lacks safe waste treatment!  If you’re lucky enough to have a toilet, say thanks and give it some love!  We want to ensure that toilets in Athens live up to their potential and are as water-efficient as possible.  

We invite you to nominate your favorite church or non-profit to receive a water-saving retrofit to recognize World Toilet Day (11/19).  The winning organization will receive a water assessment.  Any kitchen and bathroom aerators, showerheads, and up to five toilets found not to meet the current Georgia plumbing code standards for water efficiency will receive a retrofit and/or replacement.  The winning nomination will be chosen based on water-saving potential and capacity for public education. 

World Toilet Day calls for reliable sanitation for all by 2030.  Learn more about World Toilet Day and the value of toilets.
