Glad to see you recognize a company in your back yard that is leading the nation in developing water efficient technology as well as "walking its talk!" That plant is the greenest operation of its kind in the United States and TOTO USA was recognized by EPA last year with one of its new Water Efficiency Leadership awards.
It is about time that Atlanta wakes up to the huge water waste that exists downtown as well as in its sprawl. I have witnessed several downtown hotels using 5+ gallon toilets and very wasteful showers in their rooms. This drought ought to convince people that they should value water a little more. But we still are paying far less that the cost of supplying it! When water (and the collection and treatment of wastewater) rates are raised to enable the full cost of these services including the depreciation of all the infrastructure that was funded with tax money, then the small amount we spend to make these most important seats in our homes more efficient will seem like a no brainer!

You should check out Caroma Dual Flush, their dual flush toilets average less than 1 gallon per flush if you have 4 liquid to 1 solid. They come from Australia, the second driest continent. Atlantawatersolutions.com

My husband and I went looking at the big box home fix-it stores to replace our toilets when our community offered a rebate for replacing old toilets. We were very disappointed with the selection of effecient toilets these stores were offering. My husband went on-line, found TOTO toilets and bought locally for less than the big box stores were selling. We are very pleased with the performance and looking forward to seeing what our water bill will be next month. We had no idea we were buying a top-of- the-line toilet but I have since read nothing but good things about this company.
