Concord, EPA program aim to help residents save water
In an effort to help Concord residents save water, the city’s General Services Department has partnered with an Environmental Protection Agency program called WaterSense.
Through the WaterSense program, the EPA identifies water-efficient products and labels them for consumers. Angelina Bossone, communications director for general services, said the city hopes to harness WaterSense to help residents save both water and money.
“Their initiative is to conserve water,” Bossone said. “With that, the city of Concord is using WaterSense to help Concord residents realize they can save money on their water bills simply by saving water.”
The city also employs a water conservation technician, Josh Worthen, to help identify ways Concord could use its water supply efficiently.
“We look forward to working with residents of Concord to improve water efficiency awareness by promoting WaterSense-labeled products and water-saving practices,” Worthen said in the release.
By using water-efficient fixtures such as faucets or toilets, the average household can save 30,000 gallons per year, according to the release.
“It’s a whole movement where we are really trying to get the citizens to know that we care about our water supply, in addition to them saving (money),” Bossone said.
