Low-flow flush­ers hot items

STRATFORD - One of the town’s wa­ter con­ser­va­tion pro­grams is so pop­u­lar it has been ex­tended. The Town of Stratford said the re­bate pro­gram, which be­gan late last year, is go­ing a bit longer. Ac­cord­ing to En­vi­ron­ment Canada, toi­let flush­ing ac­counts for up to 30 per cent of daily wa­ter us­age. The re­place­ment of an older, less ef­fi­cient toi­let with a new ul­tra-low flow toi­let can save an av­er­age of 62,500 litres of wa­ter per per­son each year. El­i­gi­ble util­ity cus­tomers again have the op­por­tu­nity to re­ceive up to two, $100 re­bates for the in­stal­la­tion of ul­tra-low flow toi­lets. While there re­mains a cap of two re­bates per el­i­gi­ble prop­erty avail­able for new ap­pli­cants, those who haven’t ac­cessed a sec­ond el­i­gi­ble re­bate in the first round can do so now. Any Stratford util­ity cus­tomer, residential and busi­ness, are asked to fill out an ap­pli­ca­tion form and pro­vide a re­ceipt for both the toi­let pur­chase and dis­posal of the old toi­let.
