Low Flow Rest Room Fixtures in the Central Passenger Terminal Complex

In response to record drought conditions in 2007, the Department began a major water conservation initiative. Specifically, 630 toilets with a 1.6 gallon per flush rating were replaced with 1.28 gallon per flush models. Further, 1,200 one-gallon per flush urinals were replaced with 0.5 gallon per flush units.

From April 2007 to March 2008, the Airport used 324.9 million gallons of water. The following year, water usage dropped by nearly 8 percent. Water consumption dropped by a further 61.2 million gallons – 20.4 percent – between April 2009 and March 2010.

The conversion to low-flow restroom fixtures throughout the Airport is one reason for the savings.
