The United States Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Indianapolis-based Delta Faucet Co. as a 2019 Sustainable Excellence Award Winner for water conservation.
“EPA commends Delta Faucet Company – once again – for its continuing national leadership and commitment to water conservation,” said Region 5 EPA administrator Cathy Stepp. “By promoting public awareness and sharing information with customers and developing innovative technology, our industry partners provide critical support to EPA’s efforts to promote water efficiency, both here at home and abroad.”
Delta Faucet Co. has been working to reduce water waste since adopting WaterSense products in 2006. Their efforts have helped save more than 3.4 trillion gallons of water and $84.2 billion through the WaterSense program, according to a press release from the EPA.
“We are honored to receive the WaterSense Sustained Excellence Award for the fifth consecutive year as it demonstrates our steadfast commitment to not only improving water efficiency, but also educating consumers and trade professionals on the benefits of the WaterSense program,” said Ken Roberts, Delta Faucet Co. president, in a statement.
The WaterSense program is sponsored by the EPA and “seeks to protect the future of the nation’s water supply by offering Americans a simple way to use less water.” The products use 20% less water and have been independently certified, guaranteeing their effectiveness outside of their affiliation with the EPA.
WaterSense products, which are available for both homes and businesses, saved approximately 725 billion gallons of water in 2018.
