Did you know that bathroom sink faucets account for more than 15 percent of indoor household water use-more than 1 trillion gallons of water across the United States each year?
In the near future, bathroom sink faucets will be eligible for the WaterSense label. On February 8, 2007 the WaterSense program released the draft specification for bathroom sink faucets. The draft specification will be open for review and comment through March 23, 2007. EPA will accept written comments and hold a public meeting via a telephone conference call on March 1 to discuss stakeholder comments. Following the comment period, EPA will make any necessary revisions to the certification criteria, publish the final specification, and allow manufacturers to begin to certify and label their products. Please review the fact sheet on high-efficiency bathroom sink faucets at EPA for more information on how we can reduce water use in the home.
