AWE WaterSense and Water-Efficient Products Committee
Co-Chair: Rob Zimmerman, Kohler Co.
Co-Chair: Jill Hoyenga, Eugene Water & Electric Board
Purpose: To encourage and support improvement in the efficiency of water use in North America through the adoption of performance criteria for water-using products and equipment, urban landscapes, whole buildings, and related professional services. The Committee provides multi-stakeholder input regarding the timing, scope, efficiency metrics, and partner activities for products and services being considered by the voluntary WaterSense and Energy Star programs. The committee also provides a multi-stakeholder forum for consideration and advocacy of federal and state/provincial minimum water efficiency standards for new products and equipment. The committee will advise the AWE Board of Directors and staff on communication with federal, state/provincial, and local officials, business leaders, and water related organizations on voluntary and regulatory proposals, including efficiency criteria, program funding, and legislative authority, as needed.
