Local irrigation professional partners with EPA’s WaterSense Program

Clint Allison, president of Rainscapes, has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program to promote water-efficient landscapes and help consumers save water outdoors. As part of this partnership, Clint Allison has undergone testing and achieved certification for landscape irrigation installation and maintenance with an emphasis on water efficiency through a certification program labeled by WaterSense.

“WaterSense irrigation partners have committed to helping consumers find water-efficient solutions for healthy lawns and gardens as well as their wallets and the environment,” said Sheila Frace, Director, EPA Office of Water’s Municipal Support Division.

WaterSense partners have been certified through programs that test individuals to ensure that they know the most efficient way to design, install and maintain, or audit a landscape irrigation system.

WaterSense irrigation partners certified through a WaterSense labeled installation/ maintenance program know how to select equipment, prepare site layout, and properly schedule irrigation for optimal system performance.

By signing up as a Water Sense partner, Clint Allison has committed to supporting water-efficient landscape watering practices and staying up to date on the latest practices and technologies.

“EPA estimates that more than 50 percent of commercial and residential irrigation water use can go to waste due to evaporation, runoff or over-watering,” Frace said. “Through efficient irrigation techniques and products, WaterSense partners can help their customers save water and money while reducing stress on water systems and maintaining a beautiful landscape.”
