Exeter Public Works Partners with EPA’s WaterSense Program

Exeter, NH – The town of Exeter, NH has teamed with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program to help consumers conserve water for future generations. Exeter is the most recent community in New Hampshire to form a partnership with the WaterSense program. Exeter joins DES, the Town of Lincoln, the Town of Wolfeboro, and Pennichuck Water Works as promotional partners in New Hampshire.

The aim of the EPA program is to decrease indoor and outdoor water use through high efficiency products and simple water saving practices. The program helps customers identify water efficient products in the marketplace that have been independently certified for efficiency and performance and promotes water saving techniques that reduce stress on water systems and the environment.

"We have been working towards making our water system more efficient in the past few years. This effort has included offering water saving kits to our residential customers and improving our leak detection capabilities. This is another step in that effort, especially in regards to getting the water conservation message out. We’re happy to be part of the program," said Jennifer Perry, Director of Public Works for Exeter, NH. By partnering with WaterSense, Exeter, NH has demonstrated its commitment to protecting water resources through ensuring efficient use. As a partner, Exeter will help promote the WaterSense program and water efficiency among its citizens.

EPA announced WaterSense in June 2006, at the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Conference and Exposition in San Antonio, Texas. WaterSense labeled products, which include high efficiency toilets, showerheads, and faucets meet EPA’s criteria for efficiency and performance. Certified products may bear the WaterSense label, which makes it easy for consumers to identify and select a variety of quality, high efficiency products and services for their homes and landscapes.
