On October 6, 2010, the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) recognized Cascade Water Alliance, Moen Incorporated,
Lowe’s
Companies, Inc., and Judy Benson as the 2010 WaterSense Partners of
the Year. Along with more than 2,000 other WaterSense partners, these
four
partners in particular have helped promote water efficiency and the
WaterSense
label to help save precious resources for future generations.

  • Cascade Water Alliance in
    King County, Washington, collaborated with local plumbers and retailers
    to help provide 3,000 rebates on WaterSense labeled toilets. It also
    launched a WaterSense Road Show to educate residents about WaterSense.

  • Plumbing manufacturer Moen
    earned the WaterSense label for all of its bathroom faucet products in
    2009, and conducted extensive national media outreach.

  • Lowe’s earned
    Retailer Partner of the Year for the second straight year by continuing
    to stock and train employees on WaterSense labeled products.
    Lowe’s introduced the “Build Your
    Savings” campaign to help consumers find products that help
    save resources and dollars.

  • Judy Benson, president of
    Clear Water Products & Services Inc., helped central Florida
    residents and businesses save water with more efficient irrigation
    technologies and techniques. Benson created a display of irrigation
    products to show clients how to properly operate equipment for maximum
    savings.

The 2010 WaterSense Partners
of the Year,
along with Excellence Award winners—partners recognized for
achievement in a
specific Partner of the Year award evaluation category—were
honored at the 2010
WaterSense Partners of the Year Awards Banquet in Las Vegas, Nevada,
cosponsored by the Alliance for Water Efficiency. For more details on
the award
winners visit the WaterSense website at www.epa.gov/watersense/awards.htm.

WaterSense
partners will continue to support
water efficiency in their communities during Fix a Leak Week 2011. EPA
is
sponsoring Fix a Leak Week 2011 to encourage Americans to find and fix
household leaks. For the second year, EPA is sponsoring a competition
among
WaterSense partners for hosting Fix a Leak Week’s national
event. The City of
Dallas, Texas, won the contest for Fix a Leak Week 2010 and sent a
fleet of
plumbers to fix leaks in local low-income households. Find more
