What Is WaterSense?
WaterSense is a program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that promotes water efficiency to conserve water resources for future generations.
The City of Concord has been an EPA WaterSense Promotional Partner since March 2014. Our partnership goal is to help Concord water consumers save water, minimize energy consumption, and potentially even reduce costs on their utility bills. We are committed to preserving the community’s water resource and encourage others to understand the importance of water efficiency to take action to conserve water. Consider upgrading outdated water fixtures with a WaterSense labeled product and conserving water use. Find some simple water conservation tips at concordnh.gov/conservation.
WaterSense labeled products are water-efficient products that have earned the WaterSense label from independent, third-party certification for meeting EPA’s specifications for water efficiency and performance. Products that include the WaterSense label are certified to use at least 20% less water than standard products without sacrificing performance. Look for the WaterSense label when upgrading water fixtures to start saving!
Fix A Leak Week
Fix a Leak Week is a national campaign hosted by EPA WaterSense each year to encourage water consumers to find and fix household water leaks to save water, energy, and possibly even money on utility bills. This year, Fix a Leak Week is March 20-26, 2023. Celebrate with us by being a leak detective and checking for water leaks in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, basement, and outside. Most leaks are easy to fix, such as a dripping faucet or running toilet. Get involved by joining us for a #FixaLeak Twitter Party on March 20, grab a free Toilet Leak Dye Test Kit at our Utility Billing Office (or use food coloring at home), and enter our Royal Leak Detection contest for a chance to win a WaterSense-labeled toilet.

The WaterSense program has helped Americans save water by offering easy ways to reduce water use. Since 2006, WaterSense has helped Americans save 6.4 trillion gallons of water and more than $135 billion in water and energy bills through the end of 2021. WaterSense-labeled products additionally saved 754 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity. WaterSense makes a difference. View the 2021 WaterSense Accomplishments Report.
