EPA WATER SENSE NEW HOMES PROGRAM

WaterSense labeled homes allow families to enjoy all the comforts of home while using less water and energy and spending less money on utility bills. In fact, compared to a typical home, a WaterSense labeled home can save a family of four 50,000 gallons of water a year or more! That's enough to wash 2,000 loads of laundry and could amount to utility bill savings of up to $600 each year.  Click link below for more information.
