  2. Platte Canyon has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to bring you WaterSense®, a national program that offers consumers a simple way to make product choices that use less water with no sacrifice to quality or product performance. 

    The mission of the WaterSense® program is to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by decreasing indoor and outdoor water use through more water-efficient products, equipment, programs, and professional services which have been independently certified for efficiency, performance and promote water-saving techniques. To date, the list of certified products include: high-efficiency toilets, bathroom sink faucets, landscape irrigation professional services, and irrigation control technologies. For a comprehensive list of manufacturers and models which have been certified under the program please click here. For a list of certified professionals and services click here.

    The EPA has developed the WaterSense® label to help consumers easily identify water-efficient products in the marketplace while ensuring product performance and encouraging innovation in manufacturing. This label will appear on product cartons and packaging, be adhered directly to the product, be featured on in-store displays, and be found in manufacturer literature and Web sites.

    By choosing products labeled through the WaterSense program, you know you’ll be saving water for future generations.
