Make It
Possible
WaterSense, a partnership program sponsored
by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), works collaboratively with companies,
organizations, and communities to encourage innovation
in manufacturing and support sustainable jobs for
American workers. Since 2006, the WaterSense label
has made it easy for consumers to find high-performing,
water-efficient products. Millions of Americans are
saving water, energy, and money by installing
WaterSense labeled products in homes and businesses.
WaterSense Labeled Products
The first WaterSense labeled products hit
store shelves in 2007. Since then, more
product types have earned the WaterSense
label, and the total number of WaterSense
labeled models continues to grow.

Draft Soil Moisture Sensor Specification Release
In development since 2013, EPA released the WaterSense Draft Specification for
Soil Moisture-Based Irrigation Control Technologies. Also known as soil moisture
sensors (SMSs), these technologies can detect the amount of moisture in the
ground beneath the landscape and override scheduled irrigation when plants don't
Hunter industries.	need water, reducing water waste and promoting plant health.
New Spanish Website and Tools
EPA created espahol.epa.gov/watersense, an all-Spanish version of the
WaterSense website to share information on labeled products, water-
saving programs, and water conservation tips. WaterSense also provides its
partners with Spanish versions of infographics, bill stuffers, checklists, and
other educational materials for Spanish-speaking audiences.
Growing Outdoor Education
Helping their customers manage outdoor water use is
a big challenge for many water utilities. WaterSense
is focused on sharing materials to help them
communicate the benefits of water-smart landscaping
and irrigation practices. For example, a case study
described how a California golf course uses drones
to survey the landscape to target watering needs and
La Rinconada Country club greatly reduce outdoor water use.
WaterSense Completes Specification Review
As required by the America's Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, EPA reviewed
existing WaterSense product specifications for tank-type toilets, flushing
urinals, bathroom faucets, showerheads, and irrigation controllers for
potential improvements to water efficiency and/or product performance.
EPA completed its review and, in early 2020, announced its decision that it
will not make updates or changes to the product specifications.
What's Next?
As a follow-up to its review
of specifications, WaterSense
released a Federal Register
notice in April 2020 to
seek Input and request
information on any data,
surveys, or studies to help
assess consumer satisfaction
with WaterSense labeled
products, which could inform
future product specification
development.
