Williamsburg/ James City County Water Conservation

By Cortney Langley VA Gazette Dec 2008
While the James City Service Authority’s rebate program is
aggressive enough, the James City County
Citizens Coalition is taking it one step further.
The activist group has teamed up with
Ferguson Enterprises to provide even
deeper discounts on water-saving appliances.
The new program, dubbed “Flush &
Save,” builds on the $75 rebate JCSA
offers on WaterSense toilets.
Ferguson has agreed to provide an additional
20% discount to county residents
participating in the program, according to
a release.
WaterSense appliances are rated for
efficiency under a U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency program. It applies to
toilets with a 1.28-gallon maximum flush.
In this area, the toilets run $250-$750,
according to the James City Service
Authority. A 20% discount can shave $50-
$150 off that.
Additionally, the EPA estimates that a
family of four saves, on average, 4,000
gallons of water a year with the efficient
toilets, equaling another $90 annual savings.
Meanwhile, the J4C is met this month
with a number of local plumbers to try to
negotiate installation rates down, also. The
group is hoping that plumbers will agree
to trim $25 from installation costs.
J4C member Kensett Teller said the J4C
was already planning Flush & Save when
county officials rolled out the expanded
rebate program.
If the program is taken up en masse, she
said, the impact on the county’s water use
could be profound. She estimates savings
to exceed more than 500 million gallons
per year if 30,000 toilets are swapped out.
Although toilets account for almost a
third of indoor water use, the EPA estimates
come in lower, with about 120 million
gallons per year.
Teller said the J4C hopes to make a list
of participating plumbers available.
While Ferguson and some plumbers
may be willing to offer discounts, the service
authority does not endorse any specific
vendor.
