MWU to give out 1,500 WaterSense showerheads

As part of Madison Water Utility's conservation initiative, we're giving away more than one thousand high-efficiency, WaterSense showerheads this Saturday at Warner Park Community Recreation Center. This is the first time the utility has ever launched a massive giveaway aimed at reducing water use. By switching to WaterSense showerheads, the average family could save 2,900 gallons of water every year – plus they'll save the energy it would have taken to heat all that water.
Any Madison resident interested in picking up a free showerhead can stop by the Warner Park Community Recreation center this Saturday between and 1 p.m. People should bring proof of Madison residency or their Madison Municipal Services Bill. Limit one per household.
The showerheads that will be given away use just one-and-a-half gallons of water per minute – a full gallon less than a typical showerhead. They are made in the USA (Madera County, California) and feature an innovative, compact design that creates a wide spray from a single stream of water. A 2016 recipient of the EPA’s WaterSense Excellence Award, the showerheads are constructed from solid brass and stainless steel and contain a pressure regulator that works to keep spray strength consistent.
Any showerheads left over after Saturday’s event will handed out at our Olin St. offices starting Monday, Nov. 21st during regular business hours: 119 East Olin Ave., 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
