WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has honored two kitchen and bath manufacturers with WaterSense awards. Niagara, the Texas-based manufacturer of high-performance water-saving toilets, has been named “WaterSense Partner of the Year” by the EPA. WaterSense honored the company for its commitment to educating partners, architects, engineers, staff and sales teams about WaterSense benefits and products through continuing education programs, materials, online resources and product packaging,
“We are honored to be named the WaterSense Partner of the Year,” the company said. “This award is a huge accomplishment for our entire team and a giant step in continuing to fulfill our mission.”
The EPA also recognized Kohler Co., based in Kohler, WI, with a 2022 “WaterSense Sustained Excellence Award” for the company’s efforts to innovate water-efficient plumbing products and promote water conservation. The award is Kohler’s 8th Sustained Excellence recognition and its 13th year of recognition overall by the WaterSense program, according to the company.
“Throughout 2021, our award-winning partners helped people protect this precious resource by promoting WaterSense labeled products and water-efficient behaviors,” said Veronica Blette, WaterSense Program Manager. “Saving water is particularly critical in areas impacted by drought but is also a path to helping consumers stretch dollars by reducing their water and energy bills.”
