2019 Annual Report Cover

2019 was a year of production. AWE released studies, reports, manuals, handbooks, user guides, and webinars.

We successfully mobilized our community to help ensure a place for EPA’s WaterSense program in the FY2020 national budget.

We collaborated with Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) to establish strict guidelines for installing multiple showerheads in a single stall, thus closing a significant loophole in codes and ensuring effective water efficiency standards.

We gave our primary website,, a major facelift and started work on updating our household water use resource and calculator.

The California Water Efficiency Partnership (CalWEP), a Chapter of the Alliance for Water Efficiency, hired its first Executive Director team. Congratulations to co-Executive Directors Sarah Foley and Tia Lebherz. It has been a joy watching CalWEP come into its own, and we are extremely proud to continue to support our first fully autonomous chapter.
