(Morrow, GA) October 4, 2011 – TOTO, the only plumbing manufacturer to be honored with the Water Efficiency Leader by the EPA, today announced that it has installed family style bathrooms, allowing easy access for physically challenged individuals and families with children, at Turner Field, in Atlanta.
“We have been working with the Braves stadium for several years to help them reduce water consumption during their next major renovation,” said Bill Strang, Senior Vice President, Operations. “During these conversation the field’s management indicated a desire to install family bathrooms, and we offered to provide the products and services needed to support that program.”
Available on all three decks of Braves Stadium, the new TOTO Family Bathrooms are the first in the stadium’s history to feature high-efficiency products.
