EPA's WaterSense

WaterSense brings together local water utilities and governments, product manufacturers, retailers, consumers, and other stakeholders to:

  • Decrease 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
