Recently Approved Water Appliance Standards to Save Billions of Gallons of Water

Due to the severity of California's drought, the state's experts have been managing water resources to deal with the effects of the drought and prepare for the next one. As part of the solution, the California Energy Commission approved standards for water appliances which will save more than 10 billion gallons of water in the first year. Over time, the water savings is estimated to reach 105 billion gallons per year - a savings of more than three times the annual amount of water used by the City of San Francisco.

The energy efficiency and water standards require toilets, urinals, and kitchen and bathroom faucets to consume less water thereby using less energy while performing the same function. Click here for more details.
