Water Efficiency Program Celebrates 10 Years

— Written By

Many have heard of the Energy Star program that helps consumers identify energy efficient appliances, equipment, building products, and homes. Not all, however, know that there is a similar program that helps to identify water efficient products.  The WaterSense label is an EPA Partnership Program that helps consumers identify indoor and outdoor products that help save water and thereby save money and energy, too.


Since its inception ten years ago, WaterSense has helped consumers save over 1.5 trillion gallons of water and over $32.6 billion dollars in water and energy bills. Look for the WaterSense labels or logos the next time you replace your toilet, faucet, or showerhead.
