PMI Assists Drought-Stricken Orme, Tenn.

January 1, 2008


On Nov. 17, members of the Plumbing Manufacturers Institute donated and installed high-efficiency plumbing fixtures for the citizens of Orme, Tenn., who have been without a water supply of their own for some time now due to drought conditions in the Southeast. Orme has been forced to ship water in from neighboring states, and has been restricted to a three-hour period of water usage each day. A volunteer group of plumbers did an all-day blitz installation called “Race To Save Water.”
