EPA reports that consumers using WaterSense labeled products saved more than 1.1 trillion gallons of water in 2022.

The U.S. EPA released its 2022 WaterSense Accomplishments Report, noting that consumers using WaterSense labeled products saved more than 1.1 trillion gallons of water in 2022.

WaterSense is a voluntary partnership program sponsored by EPA, acting as both a label for water-efficient products and a resource for helping consumers save water. WaterSense labeled products are independently certified to use 20% less water and perform as well or better than standard models.

“It’s encouraging to see consumers using WaterSense labeled products in their homes and businesses to conserve water and build upon our water efficiency efforts,” said Andrew Sawyers, Director of EPA’s Office of Wastewater Management. “What’s more, Americans saved significant utility costs and energy associated with these products.”

EPA says that, since, EPA’s WaterSense program was launched in 2006, consumers and businesses have saved more than 7.5 trillion gallons of water by purchasing water-saving plumbing fixtures and irrigation products.

WaterSense partners and works with more than 2,000 utilities, communities, manufacturers, home builders, retailers, and other organizations to produce and promote toilets, faucets, showerheads, spray sprinkler bodies, irrigation controllers and homes that are independently certified to use less water and perform well.
