High Desert Market
The popular and well-visited High Desert Market and Café located in Old Bisbee received two 1.1 gallon per flush pressure assist toilets to replace old 5 gallon per flush toilets from the USPP Water Conservation Program in 2007. Annual savings was estimated to be 70,200 gallons. The Market contributed to the project by paying for the installation of the toilets.
Imagine Charter School
This $1600 grant was awarded in 2010 for the installation of a 3,000 gallon rainwater collection tank. The 16,000 square foot roof area will yield significant water to be actively used in the school garden. The School matched the grant with volunteers who installed the system and guided the gardening project. The school is integrating portions of the rainwater system into the science curriculum and afterschool 4-H club. Grants from other organizations will help pay for a drip irrigation system, another rain tank, plumbing materials and solar pump.
