WaterSense reschedules webinar

Industry News

Due to delays associated with the government shutdown, the webinar will now be October 30.

| October 23, 2013

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) WaterSense program recently announced the release of its Draft WaterSense Professional Certification Program Labeling System and three draft revised specifications for professional certification programs. The draft system consolidates a set of requirements that complement and streamline each WaterSense program specification and provides a more sustainable framework for long-term program growth.

Due to delays associated with the recent Federal government shutdown, EPA is rescheduling the webinar, which provides a public forum for the WaterSense team to discuss the draft materials and answer stakeholders’ questions. EPA will now host the webinar on Wednesday, October 30, 2013, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern. Please register for the webinar by clicking here.

EPA encourages WaterSense partners and other stakeholders to provide written comments on the draft labeling system and draft revised specifications by Tuesday, November 19, 2013. Comments can be submitted to watersense-programs@erg.com, and detailed instructions on how to submit comments are available on the WaterSense website.

Please contact the WaterSense Helpline at 866-WTR-SENS (987-7367) or watersense@epa.gov with any questions.
