EPA to Raise Consumer Awareness Through Certification Recognition

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is currently reviewing details of its program to recognize irrigation certification programs. Under the agency's Water Efficiency Program, certification will be the first service that will be eligible for recognition.

The Water Efficiency Program was established to help consumers identify water efficient products and services. The program will recognize certifications for irrigation auditors, irrigation installation and maintenance professionals and irrigation designers. Recognition by the EPA will help raise the profile of approved certification programs among consumers.

Irrigation Association Executive Director Tom Kimmell and a number of IA members recently attended a session to comment on the draft guidelines and provided written feedback. Finalized details of the program are expected this summer.
