WaterSense Announces Notice of Intent to Develop Landscape Irrigation Sprinkler Specification

Nationally, outdoor water use accounts for about 30 percent of average household water use. To help increase outdoor water efficiency, EPA has announced its intent to develop a WaterSense specification for landscape irrigation sprinklers.

This Notice of Intent will complement the specification for irrigation control technologies, as well as the work WaterSense is doing with irrigation professionals. Water-efficient irrigation sprinklers deliver water more evenly to the landscape than traditional sprinklers and also regulate pressure to help ensure a constant flow rate.

Developing a specification that allows sprinklers to earn the WaterSense label will help provide more water-efficient irrigation equipment options to consumers and irrigation professionals.

Interested parties are invited to provide written comments or suggestions on this Notice of Intent by June 30, 2014 to watersense-products@erg.com. For more information, visit: http://epa.gov/watersense/products/irrigation_sprinklers.html.
