Water conservation bus rolls through Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  The average American uses 100-gallons of water a day.  That's why a big bus is rolling through the Tri-Cities, trying to reduce the amount of water we use. 

The 44-foot trailer is part of the "Responsible Bathroom tour."  Friday, it was parked outside of KIE Supply off Columbia Drive in Kennewick. 

It features water saving toilets, sinks, showers, and other devices plumbers and contractors can use to save water and save money.  Rob Richard, with Suntoya Corporation, says, "You average probably $6 per 10,000 gallons, and if you add up all the savings, you can save 40,50, 60,000 gallons a year in water.  That adds up in not only dollars, but you're helping the environment as well."

The bus will be outside of Consolidated Supply in Kennewick on Monday.  It'll eventually make its way across the country to more than 300 different cities.
