EPA Seeks Input for Commercial & Institutional WaterSense Program

White paper discusses possible directions for the program

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense program is looking for input and feedback on a potential WaterSense commercial and institutional program. What should a WaterSense program for commercial buildings look like?

As a first step, the program has released a white paper, “Water Efficiency in the Commercial and Institutional Sector: Considerations for a WaterSense Program.” The paper attempts to summarize the best available resources that EPA can use for planning a national commercial and institutional program and discusses various directions such a program could take. EPA is seeking broad input to guide decision-making and is interested in hearing stakeholders’ responses to current research needs and program design options.

The paper is available at
