Sac State Plans Potty Project to Conserve Water

Sac State Plans Potty Project to Conserve Water

Sacramento's largest college is using the city's help to become flush with water consumption requirements.

Sacramento State officials want to replace 521 toilets on campus with newer, more water friendly models.

The older units help contribute to an indoor water use on campus of about 325,000 gallons per day.

The project would cost about $150,000 with about 78,000 of that being paid by the City of Sacramento.

The money would come from Proposition 50, a bond for state water projects passed in 2002.

School officials say the project is necessary to achieve the city requirement of cutting water usage by 20 percent.

City officials say it could be a "poster child" for water conservation.
