Low-flow toilets. During the conservation kit giveaways at the Burnett Plaza location, Fort Worth Water customers can be pre-approved to receive a voucher for a low-flow toilet. Customers must meet the requirements of the Smart Flush Program, which includes having an active water account, verification that their address has not previously received low-flow toilets from the city, and that their house was constructed prior to 1994 according to the Tarrant Appraisal District. Conservation staff will verify the customers on-site during the event, and a limited quantity of toilets will be available for pickup at Morrison Supply, 311 E. Vickery Blvd., from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sep. 9. A drive-thru will be set up and toilets will be placed in the vehicles. Customers are responsible for removing the toilets from their vehicles, and for their installation.
Native plants. The first 50 people to register online will receive five free Texas native plants grown at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge greenhouse in support of their Native Neighborhoods campaign. From 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, these 50 winners can pick up their native plants and receive free entry to the park with their Rally Day ticket. Show your ticket at the front gate and follow instructions to the greenhouse.
