In Ecogeek today - how to save a little bit of water all the time - anyone ever thought about this one before? it's inspired! Uses the 'grey water' from your hand-washing as input into the cistern. Any ideas what to call it ? A cinkstern ? A toisink ? A sinklet ?

We don’t often think about how we could make our toilets more efficient. Maybe that’s because we don’t think about our toilets so much in general -= one flush and the problem is gone until the next time we sit and ponder. For some reason, in North America, we haven't caught on yet to what consumers in water-starved Asia and Australia have known for decades. Why should the water we flush with be as pristine as the water we drink out of the tap?

The people at Caroma have come up with an idea that makes a lot of sense. It has a system that routes the sink water used while washing hands into the toilet tank ready for the next flush. The Profile Smart Dual Flush Toilet has a built in sink behind the cistern which is useful for when space is at a premium, although it may take some adjusting to get used to straddling the seat in order to wash your hands. Apart from the filling mechanism, the toilet operates normally. The water from the sink comes directly from the utilities water supply, completely separating the two functions.
Ecogeek

The Australian company's invention has been noted last month as one of the top ten items in Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Products of 2008. It saves 70% of the flush according to Ecogeek who also reassures us the soapy water will not corrode or adversely affect the toilet components.

Install them in every Dublin household immediately please Neutral

Adare boil notice remains

By Jimmy Woulfe, Mid-West Correspondent
A LIMERICK County Council boil water notice was still in place in Adare last night, affecting 700 homes.

Council engineers worked over the weekend to rectify a problem at the village water treatment plant that led to elevated aluminium levels in the local supply.

Drinking water is being offered from a tanker located near the village heritage centre until the boil notice is lifted. The council hopes to give the all-clear in the next 24 hours.

Rural areas at far higher risk from Cryptosporidium
http://www.examiner.ie/ireland/idojojgbmh/

THE incidence of cryptosporidium is much higher in rural Ireland than in the more urbanised east of the country, the first national study of the water-borne disease shows.

Figures from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) show the highest rate of 2004-2006 cases were in the HSE West, a figure partially explained by the Galway outbreak in 2005.

In the HSE West region, there were 22.5 cases per 100,000 population.

The next highest rate, 18.2 per 100,000, was in the HSE Midlands, where there was an acute community outbreak in 2004.

Across the country, incidence rates of between 8.7-13.4 per 100,000 people were reported annually in the period 2004-2006.

However, the number of cases in the east were just 1.5 per 100,000 population.

A survey of water-borne outbreaks of cryptosporidium in 16 European countries three years ago found that Ireland had the highest incidence.

The authors of the report, Patricia Garvey and Paul McKeown, suggested the increased likelihood of contact with farm animals and poor water treatment most likely explain the higher figures.

Furthermore, in rural areas, many householders are served by private wells, which do not have controls in place against the disease.
