Conservation Kits – In 2002, DEP funded a Growing Greener grant that allowed SWA to purchase 800 water conservation kits that included a toilet tank fill cycle diverter, patented motion flow showerhead, leak detection tablets, faucet aerator for the kitchen, and faucet aerator for the bathroom.  Retail value of each kit was $16.  Using a water conservation equation, a contest was run where everybody won a kit.  Once all 800 kits were installed, the kits saved 8,760,000 gallons of water annually over the life of the host fixture.  Contests were taken to schools, civic organizations, the SRBC, girl and boy scouts….  Some kits were retained for educational purposes.
