Water Conservation Initiative Becomes Law 2017
New Law Effective January 2017
All homeowners across the state will be required to install water-conserving plumbing fixtures on homes built before 1994. If the current fixtures in your home use more than the following amounts of water – replacement is required:
- Any toilet manufactured to use more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush
- Any urinal manufactured to use more than one gallon of water per flush
- Any shower head manufactured to have a flow capacity of more than 2.5 gallons per minute
- Any interior faucet that emits more than 2.2 gallons per minute
If you are planning on selling your home, and the above requirements have not been met, a disclosure to buyers will be required. At some point the new buyers may have to install these water conservation plumbing fixtures.
