WaterSense Hits One Trillion in Water Savings

From WaterSense’s launch in 2006 through 2014, EPA and its partners have helped consumers save 1.1 trillion gallons of water and $21.7 billion in energy and water bills from using WaterSense-labeled products.  That’s more than the amount of water used by households in Texas in one year.  Energy reductions from using WaterSense products could power 13.3 million homes for one year and have prevented more than 54 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.  More than 1,600 water utilities, organizations, manufacturers, retailers, distributors, builders and irrigation professionals certified through WaterSense programs have joined with EPA to promote WaterSense-labeled products, programs and new homes.  Nearly 15,000 different models of toilets, faucets, showerheads, flushing urinals, weather-based irrigation controllers, and pre-rinse spray valves have been independently certified for performance and efficiency to earn the WaterSense label. Read more.
