OSHKOSH, WI — Sage Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (UWO) has installed dual-flush technology toilets to ensure the restrooms aren''t so environmentally wasteful, according to the UW-Oshkosh Advance-Titan.

"The whole goal of this project was to be the most energy efficient, sustainable building [it could be]," said Christine Miles, senior project manager at UWO.

"As a result of that, you look for water savings; you look for what kinds of savings you can come up with," Miles added.

Miles refers to the environmentally-friendly plumbing system at Sage Hall, Oshkosh''s newest academic building, where the dual-flush toilet has made its mark as a contribution to campus'' efforts in reducing waste and water usage, the article stated.

According to the article, the plumbing that ended up in Sage wasn''t selected specifically for its brand or appearance; rather, it was chosen because it coincided with the university''s desire to make a building as sustainable as possible.
