Newport Homebuilders’ LiveGreen Water Conservation program focuses on lowering water cost through proper selection and installation of showers, toilets, appliances, and outdoor irrigation systems.
Key program elements include:
- Re-circulating Instant Hot-Water System — Saves over 8,000 gallons of water each year that is wasted waiting for hot water to reach the tap.
- High Efficiency Outdoor Irrigation System — Saves over 30% on outdoor watering compared to conventional systems. Outdoor watering accounts for up to 50% of residential water use.
- Energy Star® Compliant Dishwasher — Uses up to 40% less water than standard models.
- Dual-Flush High Efficiency Toilets — Save enough water annually to fill a backyard swimming pool. Toilets account for over 30% of indoor water usage.
