The Alliance for Water Efficiency is pleased to appear before you today to offer views on activities and programs to improve water efficiency throughout the United States. We are a North American non‐profit organization, composed of diverse stakeholders with significant experience in water conservation programs and policies. Our mission is to promote the efficient and sustainable use of water, to promote cost‐effective water efficiency measures that will reduce wasteful consumption, reduce the need for additional drinking water and waste water capacity, and provide multiple energy, economic, and environmental benefits. And in that mission, we work closely with staff at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As the nation’s steward of ambient water quality as well as safe drinking water, EPA has promoted water efficiency’s many benefits. Programs have existed for over 20 years in EPA’s Office of Water and Wastewater, albeit modestly funded and staffed.
