WaterSense LogoLas Vegas, Nevada—The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized The Alliance for Water Efficiency with a 2018 WaterSense Excellence Award for its creative approach to supporting WaterSense and promoting water efficiency in 2017. AWE received one of 21 WaterSense awards today at the WaterSmart Innovations Conference in Las Vegas.

Since 2006, AWE and more than 1,900 other WaterSense partners have helped consumers save more than 2.7 trillion gallons of water, or more than the amount used by all U.S. households for nearly 100 days. In addition to water savings, WaterSense labeled products and homes have helped reduce the amount of energy needed to heat, pump, and treat water by 367 billion kilowatt hours—which is enough to power more than 34.1 million homes for a year—and save $63.8 billion in water and energy bills.

“Through innovation and commitment, our partners are helping to transform the marketplace for water-efficient, high-performing products and homes,” said Veronica Blette, WaterSense program manager. “The WaterSense Sustained Excellence, Partner of the Year, and Excellence Award winners are leading the charge to save water, energy, and money for future generations.”
