IrrigationWASHINGTON, D.C. - To help increase outdoor water efficiency, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing its intent to develop a WaterSense specification for landscape irrigation sprinklers. With this announcement, EPA is releasing a Notice of Intent (NOI) that describes the performance criteria WaterSense is considering including in a draft specification, as well as the technical issues that still need to be more fully defined and resolved.

EPA is interested in green industry input. If you have comments or suggestions on the process for developing a WaterSense specification for landscape irrigation sprinklers, please send them to by July 28, 2014. Additionally, please forward this email to any of your colleagues or customers that might be interested in commenting on the Notice.

EPA suggests that you contact the WaterSense Helpline at or (866) WTR–SENS (987–7367) if you plan to submit any data that need to be handled as confidential business information (CBI). Please note that all CBI should be submitted in hard copy and not electronically. All comments, except data claimed as CBI, become a part of the public record.

For any questions regarding the WaterSense program in general, please contact the WaterSense Helpline at 866-WTR-SENS (987-7367) or
