Marin Water has been honored with a 2023 WaterSense Excellence Award for its work promoting WaterSense and water efficiency within the community it serves. The work, led by the District’s Water Efficiency Department, involved promoting WaterSense labeled products, which use less water than alternative products, helping Marin Water customers save water while also putting our region on a path toward long-term sustainable water use.
“With extreme weather affecting water supplies and quality, saving this precious resource is more important than ever,” said Veronica Blette, Chief, WaterSense Branch. “The 2023 award winners helped Americans look to WaterSense and save not just water, but the energy required to heat and treat it, as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy use.”
WaterSense, a voluntary partnership program sponsored by the EPA, is both a label for water-efficient products, programs and homes, and a resource for helping consumers learn ways to save water. Water Efficiency staff with Marin Water conduct site visits, offer guidance and partner with other agencies, nonprofits and businesses to incentivize water savings through a variety of rebates and discount programs for WaterSense products – and for water efficiency overall.
