1st Wednesday: EPA's WaterSense: Water Conservation and Market Impact

April 4th, 2012 - 8:00 am - 9:00 am - Hosted by Thornton Tomasetti


Please join Urban Green Council for an introduction to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program and its impact on residential water use.

A partnership program by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, WaterSense seeks to protect the national water supply by offering simple ways to reduce water use through water-efficient products and services. The program brings together a variety of stakeholders to promote the value of water efficiency, provide consumers with easy ways to save water, encourage innovation in manufacturing, and decrease water use and reduce strain on water resources and infrastructure.

The roundtable discussion will be led by Lorne LaMonica and Elaine Rossi-Griffin of the EPA. 
The two will introduce the WaterSense label and discuss the program's mission, current water efficiency efforts, and partners in detail.
