Facility managers can stop water and energy use from going down the drain. From the September 2013 issue.
America’s commercial and institutional facilities use 17% of the water provided by the nation’s public water supplies, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Facility professionals need to optimize their usage of this precious resource.

The California Landscape Contractors Association has received the WaterSense Label from the U.S. EPA for its Water Management Certification Program.
This first specification focused on identifying water efficient flushing urinals.
ANSI and the EPA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to mark ANSI’s acceptance as an Accreditation Body to participate in the EPA WaterSense Program.
