The City of Sierra Madre is a proud partner of WaterSense, a voluntary partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is both a label for water-efficient products and a resource for helping you save water. Since the program's inception in 2006, WaterSense has helped consumers save trillions of gallons of water and billions in water and energy bills.

Why WaterSense?

WaterSense-labeled products and services are certified to use at least 20 percent less water, save energy, and perform as well as or better than regular models.

Watersense labeled products can save families 38,000 gallons of water per year by retrofitting its home with Watersense labeled fixtures, which can be purchased at most large retailers. Product categories eligible for the WaterSense label include toilets, bathroom faucets and accessories, showerheads, flushing urinals, weather-based irrigation controllers, and spray sprinkler bodies
