This web site provides an overview of EPA's Water Efficiency Program which is primarily concerned with municipal water use. Efficient water use helps
to reduce the need for costly water supply and wastewater treatment facilities, helps maintain
stream flows and healthy aquatic habitats, and reduces the energy used to pump, heat and treat
water. A broad spectrum of stakeholders, from homeowners to State governments, can find
information here that can help them become more water-efficient.
Water-Efficient Products Market Enhancement Program
Guidelines for Water Conservation Plans:
The Safe Drinking Water Act requirement for the Guidelines, the process used to develop them,
and electronic versions of the Guidelines in both HTML and PDF files.
Water Alliances for Voluntary Efficiency (WAVE):
WAVE is no longer a sign-up partnership program. However, we still offer free
water management software (pdf file). Three versions of the software are
available: hotels, office buildings, and educational institutions (which
also has application
for military installations, office parks, research campuses, etc.). Call
or email to obtain the software.
