Orange County, Fla. – Orange County Utilities’ water conservation and reuse programs were recently recognized by a distinguished environmental agency and a global educational organization.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named Orange County Utilities as a 2020 WaterSense Partner of the Year for demonstrating its commitment to water conservation by providing and promoting WaterSense-labeled products and fixtures independently certified to use less water and perform efficiently.

WaterSense, a voluntary partnership program sponsored by the EPA, is both a label for water-efficient products and a resource for helping consumers learn ways to save water. In 2019, WaterSense-labeled products, homes and programs helped consumers and businesses save 871 billion gallons of water, along with the energy used to heat that water and money on utility bills.
