In addition, WaterSense labeled new homes incorporate water-efficient products and designs, and WaterSense labeled certification programs focus on water-efficient practices by professionals. WaterSense has developed WaterSense at Work, a compilation of water-efficiency best management practices, to help commercial and institutional facility owners and managers understand and better manage their water use.
