Whether your irrigation system is new or old, there are many resources available to help you make your landscape more water efficient. WaterSense, a voluntary partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) acts as a label for water-efficient products and a resource for saving water. 

To be WaterSense certified, a product or service must use at least 20% less water, save energy and perform as well or better than regular models.

This is a great resource to start with, as they offer a robust collection of information from videos, to PDFs and research reports on the best practices you should adopt to become more water-efficient in a variety of methods, no matter how large or small your property is. WaterSense is not limited to one sector, as the program partners with irrigation professionals, retailers and distributors, manufacturers, home builders, and utilities to bring innovative water efficiency and sustainability to American communities. 

Due to the wealth of information offered on the WaterSense website, we compiled a list of relevant EPA resources specifically for outdoor irrigation use to make your water-efficiency efforts easier.
