EPA WaterSense Program

N.C. DENR is a partner in EPA's WaterSense program. The program's mission is to protect the future of the nation's water supply by promoting and enhancing the market for water-efficient products and services. Protecting and preserving the nation's water supply is critical to our economy, the environment and human health.

The WaterSense label makes it easy to find products and services that save water while ensuring performance. WaterSense labeled products used about 20 percent less water and perform as well as or better than their less efficient counterparts. If you use an irrigation professional, look for a WaterSense partner who has been certified through a program that highlights water-efficient techniques.

The WaterSense Web site has a wealth of information about water conservation and WaterSense labeled products and services. You can also learn about becoming a WaterSense partner. The WaterSense Kids Web site is a great resource for teachers.
