NEW YORK — Two years after approved legislation requiring dual-flush toilets in all new city buildings, the city Department of Environmental Protection will offer rebates to those who replace any existing older models, according to Mother Nature Network.
The city will issue $125 vouchers, beginning in 2013, to New Yorkers who trade in the old for the new, in a city-wide effort to reduce water usage by at least three percent per day, the article stated.
According to the article, a three percent reduction would add up to nearly 30 million gallons of water saved throughout all five boroughs.
The Department of Environmental Conservation also believes that building owners can expect to see a significant reduction in their water bills, the article noted.
