The EPA today honored Colorado Springs Utilities as a 2012 WaterSense Partner of the Year.
Utilities was honored for promoting efficient use of water.
"WaterSense is proud to partner with these champions of water efficiency who share our mission to protect the future of our nation's water supply," said Nancy Stoner, EPA's acting Assistant Administrator for Water. "The 2012 WaterSense Partners of the Year were exceptional in their efforts to support innovative approaches to help people and companies save water and money on utility bills nationwide."
In 2011, Colorado Springs Utilities engaged consumers and local businesses in the water efficiency movement by offering them personalized ways to get involved. The organization's YOUtilities YouTube video contest inspired customers to document the ways in which they save water and energy at home. The contest, which aimed to create consumer advocates for water-efficient products and practices, produced a number of informative videos.
