OLYMPIA, Wash. — The state has begun a project to reduce the amount of water used on the Capitol campus in Olympia by 25 percent of the amount used last year.
The Department of General Administration expects about half of the savings will come from improved irrigation of lawns and landscaping. The Olympian reports the state also is installing more efficient toilets and faucets.
The $740,000 project is partially funding by a $221,00 rebate from the regional sewer utility. The project is expected to reduce wastewater by 18,000 gallons a day.
