      rater Alliances for Voluntary Efficiency
      (WAVE) is a voluntary partnership that
encourages commercial businesses and institu-
tions to examine water usage and implement
water efficiency programs. It is part of the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's)
long-term effort to prevent pollution and reduce
demands on the nation's water and energy
resources.

WAVE members use water-efficient technolo-
gies and implement water awareness initiatives,
where profitable, to reduce their water use.
Some WAVE Partners have achieved water use
reductions of up to 30 percent through various
efficiency measures. Increasing your water use
efficiency also can help you save on energy,
wastewater treatment, and maintenance costs.

Currently, more than 100 businesses and organ-
izations participate in WAVE. Among those
endorsing WAVE as economically and environ-
mentally beneficial are the American Water
Works Association, American Hotel &• Motel
Association, Business for Social Responsibility,
and Green Seal.
