FLORIDIANS WOULD DISAGREE?

Recently, the Cobb County Water System in Marietta, Georgia won an award for water conservation from the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Because Cobb County
teamed up with Kohler, Lowe’s Home Improvement stores and others, to promote Georgia’s tax holiday for WaterSense products, which include low-flow shower heads and faucets, and toilets that use less water, and water sensors for sprinkler systems to stop needless watering, they were named 'WaterSense partners'.


And while we think low-flow shower heads and faucets are an important component of energy conservation, sprinkler systems of any kind cannot be considered a part of water conservation, no matter their level of efficiency. As long as the State of Georgia continues its 'any growth is good growth policies', they will continue to create larger and larger burdens on the aquifer that provides not only Georgia, but Florida and Alabama with clean drinking water.


. WaterSense products include such things as water sensors for sprinkler systems to stop needless watering; lve won government recognition for their water-conserving ways.obb County water a., and Kohler, maker of water faucets and other plumbing supplies, haofficials
