The Alliance for Water Efficiency is a stakeholder-based 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the efficient and sustainable use of water.

We serve as a North American advocate for water-efficient products and programs, and provides information and assistance on water conservation efforts.

The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) is a voice and a platform for water use efficiency and water conservation; bringing a critical perspective to an increasingly thirsty North America.

AWE is a partnership organization. We are a collective of organizations and professionals who are changing the way people think about water. Driven by our belief that using water efficiently saves money, preserves the environment, and helps communities thrive, we work to achieve sustainable water use. We will succeed with the help of our members and partners, and we will measure our success by the success of our members and partners.

Since day one, AWE has embarked on seven key tasks to support and enhance water conservation efforts, providing benefit to water utilities, water conservation professionals, planners, regulators, and consumers.

  • Stand as a clear and authoritative national voice for water efficiency;

  • Provide comprehensive information about water-efficient products, practices, and programs--what works and what doesn’t;

  • Represent the interest of water efficiency in the development of codes and standards;

  • Transform the market for fixtures and appliances;

  • Coordinate with green building initiatives to institutionalize water efficiency;

  • Train water conservation professionals; and

  • Educate water users.
