AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – An Austin toilet rebate program is down the
drain.

Wednesday was the last day to purchase a low-flow toilet at a
retailer and apply for a rebate check from the city.

The Austin American-Statesman reports the city is ending the
toilet-rebate program, which began in the mid-1990s to save water,
as utility officials shift limited dollars to other conservation
measures.

Low-flow toilets will still be available free for residents and
business owners willing to pick them up at a city-contracted
vendor.

Austin Water Utility official Drema Gross say the toilet rebate
program is no longer the best method for conserving water.
