ABSTRACT

WaterSense® Program: Congressional Authorization [Updated June 3, 2021]   [open pdf - 521KB]

From the Document: "WaterSense is a voluntary labeling program created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to encourage the development and use of water-efficient products and services. Through WaterSense, EPA develops water efficiency specifications for products, certain services, and homes; licenses third-party certification bodies; and maintains a registry of WaterSense-labeled products and certified services. [...] Funding levels for WaterSense have remained consistent for several years, notwithstanding the Trump Administration's FY2018 through FY2021 proposals to eliminate such funding. The Biden Administration does not propose an elimination for WaterSense funding in FY2022. FY2021 funding for WaterSense is the same as the FY2020 and FY2019 enacted funding levels of $4.5 million, according to the joint explanatory statement that accompanied the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260)."
