WaterSense recognizes that household products aren’t the only way to be water-efficient. Many water-based services play a role in helping a home or business save money and conserve this natural resource.
Currently, the WaterSense label appears on professional certification programs for landscape irrigation professionals. These WaterSense labeled programs verify an individuals' professional proficiency in water-efficient irrigation system design, installation/maintenance, and auditing.
WaterSense is continually working to expand the number of service programs that qualify for the label, so check back often to see what exciting new services are being added.
Launched in 2006, WaterSense is an EPA-sponsored partnership program that seeks to protect the future of our nation's water supply by promoting water efficiency and enhancing the market for water-efficient products, programs, and practices.
WaterSense brings together local water utilities and governments, product manufacturers, retailers, consumers, and other stakeholders to:
* Decrease indoor and outdoor non-agricultural water use through the adoption of more efficient products and practices.
* Help consumers make water-efficient choices, including differentiating between products and services in the marketplace and adopting simple daily activities that reduce water use.
* Encourage innovation in manufacturing
* Establish and standardize rigorous certification criteria that ensure product efficiency, performance, and quality.
WaterSense helps consumers identify water-efficient products and programs that meet WaterSense water efficiency and performance criteria. Products carrying the WaterSense label perform well, help save money, and encourage innovation in manufacturing.
WaterSense partners with manufacturers, retailers and distributors, and utilities to bring WaterSense labeled products to the marketplace and make it easy to purchase high-performing, water-efficient products.
WaterSense also partners with irrigation professionals and irrigation certification programs to promote water-efficient landscape irrigation practices.
