For the third consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognized the City of Fort Worth with a WaterSense Award. This year the city was named WaterSense Partner of the Year for its creative approach to supporting WaterSense and promoting water efficiency in 2017.

Fort Worth received one of 21 WaterSense awards presented Oct. 4 at the WaterSmart Innovations Conference in Las Vegas.

Since 2006, Fort Worth and more than 1,900 other WaterSense partners have helped consumers save more than 2.7 trillion gallons of water, or more than the amount used by all U.S. households for nearly 100 days. In addition to water savings, WaterSense labeled products and homes have helped reduce the amount of energy needed to heat, pump and treat water by 367 billion kilowatt hours — which is enough to power more than 34.1 million homes for a year — and save $63.8 billion in water and energy bills.

Fort Worth was honored as a 2018 WaterSense Partner of the Year for its numerous water conservation efforts, including collaborating with EPA on a 2017 Fix a Leak Week Hispanic outreach pilot program. The pilot program consisted of culturally-relevant outreach materials focusing on finding and fixing leaks. The utility developed the materials in partnership with WaterSense. The outreach content has been distributed and used nationally in an effort to promote water conservation.

“Fort Worth understands the value of water and will continue to encourage water conservation within our community through valuable programs and partnerships, such as our collaboration with WaterSense,” said Fort Worth Water Director Chris Harder.
