For the second year in a row, the Irrigation Association has been named the 2014 WaterSense Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
In 2013, IA became the first professional certifying agency partner to win the award.
By producing and promoting WaterSense labeled product, more than 1,500 WaterSense partners helped Americans save 271 billion gallons of water in 2013.
The WaterSense Partner of the Year award recognizes those partners who help advance the mission of WaterSense, increase awareness of the WaterSense label in a measurable way and increase the adoption of water-efficient practices among their constituents or community.
The association was honored with this award due to its efforts to promote the value of IA’s Select Certified program to the existing marketplace through targeted marketing campaigns, interactive seminars at the Irrigation Show & Education Conference, and the launch of the certified irrigation technician program.
