Truckee Donner Public Utility District’s Water Day offers free toilet exchange

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; The Truckee Donner Public Utility District seeks to provide the community with better water and money saving strategies.

Saturday, Aug. 20, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., 11570 Donner Pass Road, TDPUD Water Day presents an event for customers to learn how to save water and save money. Qualifying customers may exchange old toilets for new ones for free, pick up free water-saving measures like low-flow showerheads, sink aerators and hose spray nozzles, and also tour TDPUDand#8217;s Patricia S. Sutton Conservation Garden to learn how to obtain beautiful landscapes while saving water. Representatives will be onsite and available for any questions about water services including new water meters, water rates, leaks on the customerand#8217;s side of the meter, and back flow requirements.

TDPUD offers the Water-Efficient Toilet Exchange program at Water Day, but the exchange is also available for customers every week, Monday through Friday at Western Nevada Supply in Truckee. Qualifying customers with a home or business built prior to 1992 may get free new toilets (up to three) for exchanging their old ones by presenting a copy of their current TDPUD water bill. Older toilets typically use between 3-7 gallons of water per flush where new water-saving toilets only use 1.6 gallons per flush or less. Exchanging may be a great investment for customers, and also helps conserve water.

Saving water is increasingly important and everyone could use a little extra cash. Discover important ways you can help conserve water. Refreshments will be served.
