NYC Joins EPA WaterSense for Water Conservation Education



Find green business solutions
New York City residents use 1.1 billion gallons of water every single day--enough to fill the Empire State Building with water five times!

That's a lot of water, and a lot of potential water savings.

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) has joined EPA's WaterSense program because efficiency matters. 

Leaking toilets and running faucets are among the greatest water-efficiency challenges in New York City.

The city benefits when people use WaterSense labeled toilets and lavatory sinks because they use less water and perform better. Conserving water will not only help New Yorkers save money, but it helps to conserve the supply we all depend on.


As a promotional partner, NYC DEP will help EPA educate consumers about the value of water, water efficiency, and the WaterSense label. 

Public Restrooms in Times Square

WaterSense already made its Broadway debut in 2007 and 2008 with the Charmin Holiday Restrooms in Times Square.

The restrooms featured WaterSense labeled Kohler brand toilets and faucets and spelled relief for both tourists and locals in need of a public restroom during the holiday shopping season and on New Year's Eve.

Since joining the program early this year, NYC DEP has already begun spreading the news about WaterSense to its approximately 9 million customers through its Web site and at public outreach events. Thanks to this partnership and the prospect of better water efficiency, the Big Apple could earn a new nickname: the city that never leaks.
