ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - A southern New Mexico city is giving residents another incentive to conserve water with a new low flow toilet rebate policy.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports (https://goo.gl/FUWuiv) that Alamogordo City Commissioners recently voted to make the policy official after city officials had been offering the rebate for years.

The move comes as New Mexico continues to see abnormally dry conditions throughout the state.

Officials say a high flow toilet is a toilet which uses three gallons or more of water per flush. A low flow toilet uses 1.6 gallons or less per flush and typically manufactured or installed after 1994.

Customer service manager Mark Threadgill says the city is changing crediting the customer from $6 a month for 12 months per toilet to a one-time credit of $72 per toilet.
