Viega announced it will help with rebuilding efforts for the town of Greensburg, Kan., by donating a MANABLOC® homerun water distribution system for every affected home. In May 2007, Greensburg was devastated by an EF-5 tornado. The town as since committed to rebuilding “green” through a GreenTown Initiative.
Residents who sustained losses in Greensburg and Kiowa County can sign up for a free MANABLOC system at the Green Sustainability Visitor Center in Greensburg.
The Viega donation of $300,000 worth of plumbing products to tornado-ravaged Kiowa County residents will supply hot and cold water for a typical 1,200 square-foot home. The entire package includes:
- A 24-port ViegaPEX Press MANABLOC
- 1/2-, 3/8- and 3/4-inch ViegaPEX tubing (in red and blue)
- All the Viega fittings required to make the system operate
“We can all learn from the people of Greensburg,” said Schmierer. “It makes me proud to help rebuild a town that will serve as a symbol of what sustainable living in our country can look like when we all work together.”
