Ewing Irrigation has joined the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense Partner Program, reinforcing the company’s commitment to water efficiency and resource conservation.

“The customers we serve have a significant opportunity to save water,” said Warren Gorowitz, vice president of sustainability and conservation for Ewing. “Our role is to help contractors understand the water efficient technologies out there, and how to properly install and manage them for optimal water savings.”

With an estimated 1.5 billion gallons of water wasted each day through over irrigation and improper use, the goal of WaterSense is to decrease consumers’ indoor and outdoor water use by promoting high-efficiency products and simple water-saving practices.

Gorowitz has been actively involved with the EPA’s WaterSense program since its launch in 2006, and is eagerly anticipating the EPA’s final specification for WaterSense labeled smart controllers slated for release this November.

“With the WaterSense label, we can extend our reach and reinforce our message that smart controllers can, when properly installed and managed, contribute to significant water savings,” said Gorowitz.
