First Community of Homes Earns WaterSense Label

On January 25th, the “zHome” community in Issaquah, Washington was acknowledged as the first community of homes in the nation in which every home had earned the WaterSense label. In addition to the homes each earning the WaterSense label, the community has also received the Forest Stewardship Council’s 2011 award for the best residential project in North America. WaterSense, a partnership program sponsored by EPA, seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services.
