Dr. Atiba set up a drip irrigation system throughout his property including drip to water his apple trees.
Dr. Atiba replaced all his toilets with super water efficient Stealth toilets which use passive "vacuum-assist" technology to deliver a very quiet, effective flush that consumes just 0.8 gallons (3.0 liters).
He also worked with a District water-wise coach to completely redo his landscaping to be drought tolerant.
This included adding gravel and replacing high water plants with low water plants.

Dr. Joshua Atiba hopes to motivate others to upgrade their fixtures and landscaping to save water as he did. He has cut his water use dramatically by replacing all of his high water use toilets and shower heads. Outdoor changes on his large property lot include a water-wise landscaping redesign and drip irrigation added throughout.
