WaterSense to Review Five Product Specifications

WaterSense® is issuing a Notice of Specification Review to inform the public that it is undertaking a review of several product specifications to determine if there is a need for revision and to invite stakeholders to provide feedback.

The America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, signed on October 24, formally authorized the WaterSense program. The new law requires that, not later than December 31, 2019, the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must “consider for review and revise, if necessary, any WaterSense performance criteria adopted before January 1, 2012.” As a result, EPA is reviewing several WaterSense specifications, including specifications for tank-type toilets, lavatory faucets and faucet accessories, showerheads, flushing urinals, and weather-based irrigation controllers.

The Notice of Specification Review provides the general criteria WaterSense will use to review the specifications, summarizes the current specifications and market for each product category, and offers general questions for stakeholders to consider when providing feedback. It also discusses the revision process and tentative timeline for EPA’s activities.

On February 5, 2019, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern, EPA will host a teleconference and webinar with stakeholders to discuss the Notice. Call-in and other meeting information will be provided upon registration.

Register for the Webinar

EPA is interested in your input! If you have comments or suggestions on potential revisions to the WaterSense specifications for tank-type toilets, lavatory faucets and faucet accessories, showerheads, flushing urinals, or weather-based irrigation controllers, please submit them to watersense-products@erg.com by March 8, 2019.

For any questions regarding the WaterSense program in general, please contact the WaterSense Helpline at (866) WTR-SENS (987-7367) or e-mail watersense@epa.gov.
