Recently completed upgrades to water fixtures in nine historic buildings in Balboa Park will save an estimated 2.4 million gallons of water a year.
The $166,000 project, completed last week, will cut water use in restrooms by more than half, and also save energy. In addition, new signage at the popular local and tourist destination promotes water-use efficiency.
“We are committed to making the park a showcase for resource efficiency, just as it is for culture, history and the arts,” said Jessica Travis, director of sustainability and community relations at the cultural partnership.
“We aim to inspire millions of park visitors from across the region and around the world to make changes that save both water and energy,” she added.
