White paper discusses possible directions for the program
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense program is looking for input and feedback on a potential WaterSense commercial and institutional program. What should a WaterSense program for commercial buildings look like?
As a first step, the program has released a white paper, “Water Efficiency in the Commercial and Institutional Sector: Considerations for a WaterSense Program.” The paper attempts to summarize the best available resources that EPA can use for planning a national commercial and institutional program and discusses various directions such a program could take.

The paper is available at www.epa.gov/watersense/partners/cipaper.htm..
