What Is WaterSense?

The City of Concord has been a promotional partner of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense Program since March 2014. Our partnership goal is to help consumers save water for future generations, reduce energy consumption, and reduce costs on their utility bills. WaterSense pursues to protect our water supply by offering everyone solutions on how to use less water with water-efficient products, homes, and services.

EPA Look For WaterSensePromoting the value of water efficiency is one of the top responsibilities of WaterSense, in coordination with providing tips on how to best conserve water and reduce depletion of water resources. Products that have earned the WaterSense label have been certified to be at least 20 percent more efficient without sacrificing performance and to save the user money in the long-run on water costs.

Sprinkler Spruce Up

EPA WaterSense Partner Sprinkler Spruce-Up

Nearly 9 billion gallons of water are used each day for residential outdoor water use. It is estimated that about half of the water used outdoors is wasted due to wind, evaporation, or runoff caused by inefficient irrigation systems or practices. Don't ignore water pooling in your yard or soggy areas, this could be a sign of an irrigation leak. Help "spruce-up" Concord by saving water and promoting a healthy landscape.

Inspect
Inspect your sprinkler system to see if there are any broken, missing, or clogged sprinkler heads. Did you know that one broken sprinkler head can waste up to 25,000 gallons of water in just six months?

Connect
Be sure hoses and pipes are connected securely and tightly. Loose connections can easily waste water. 

Direct
A sprinkler head directed at pavement, a sidewalk, or even a driveway does not make good use of an irrigation system. Instead, make sure sprinklers are directed at plants, grass, and flowers. This will ensure that the water is going to where it should be.

Select
Water smarter with a WaterSense labeled irrigation controller. A clock-timer-controlled irrigation system that is not properly maintained or programmed can waste up to 30,000 gallons of water annually. Update your system's schedule with the seasons to save water and money, or try watering smarter with a WaterSense labeled irrigation controller.

Help Concord promote healthy water-efficient landscapes. A little maintenance can go a long way. Contact a certified irrigation professional if you need any help inspecting, connecting, directing, or selecting.
