Americans Save 757 Billion Gallons of Water With WaterSense

 
The U.S. Government Accountability Office recently reported that 40 out of 50 state water managers expect water shortages under average conditions in some portion of their state over the next decade. WaterSense partners know the importance of protecting water supplies for future generations. In addition to promoting WaterSense labeled products, they have helped Americans save $14.2 billion in water and energy costs and 757 billion gallons of water since the program's inception in 2006. That's enough water to supply all homes in the United States for 26 days!

The U.S. Government Accountability Office recently reported that 40 out of 50 state water managers expect water shortages under average conditions in some portion of their state over the next decade.
 
By the end of 2013, more than 10,900 different models of toilets, faucets, showerheads, flushing urinals, and weather-based irrigation controllers had earned the WaterSense label. In addition to water savings, WaterSense labeled products also helped reduce the amount of energy needed to heat, pump, and treat water by 101 billion kilowatt hours¾enough to supply more than 9.3 million homes with power for a year. These savings equate to 37 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to planting nearly 941 million trees.
 
Builder partners had constructed a total of 316 WaterSense labeled new homes by the end of 2013. These single-family homes save 50,000 gallons of water compared to traditional homes. Homeowners who invested in WaterSense labeled models have saved 16 million gallons of water combined per year. Many of these homes have yards designed using the WaterSense Water Budget tool, which uses local climate conditions to help builders create beautiful landscapes that require less water and maintenance.
 
WaterSense's success in 2013 would not have been possible without its nearly 3,000 partners and certified professionals. Working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these utilities, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, manufacturers, retailers, distributors, builders, and irrigation professionals certified through WaterSense labeled programs, have helped consumers save water, energy, and money with WaterSense.
 
Throughout 2013, WaterSense continued to spread the word about water efficiency, reaching 13,000 Facebook and Twitter followers by the end of the year. In traditional media, WaterSense achieved more than 13,000 media "hits" resulting in more than 2 billion earned media impressions.
 
WaterSense further grew its marketing and outreach efforts by launching the Sprinkler Spruce-Up campaign in May 2013. The campaign encouraged consumers to "inspect, connect, direct, and select" their sprinklers to save water during the warm-weather watering season. Water efficiency also got cooking indoors in 2013 with pre-rinse spray valves becoming the first commercial kitchen product to be able to earn the WaterSense label. WaterSense labeled pre-rinse spray valves can save a typical commercial kitchen more than 7,000 gallons of water per year, equivalent to the amount of water needed to wash nearly 5,000 racks of dishes.
