Lawmakers to limit toilet water usage in Colorado

By on October 27, 2011

Industries affected by a plan to limit water consumption are trying to appeal to lawmakers on the Water Conservation Review Committee, which is in support of a law that would require low-flow toilets in Colorado.

While many on the committee are in favor of this decision, Senator Ellen Roberts is worried that the law is unnecessary because many consumers are already trying to aid in conservation by purchasing low-flow toilets and take advantage of utility incentives.

According to The Pueblo Chieftain, “the draft legislation that is being discussed would apply to toilets that are being installed with new construction or replaced, during remodeling.” These new toilets would reduce water consumption from 1.6 gallons per flush to 1.28 gallons.

The committee met October 18 to review the proposed law and discuss other water-related legislation for the 2012 legislative session.
