DFW Builder Symposium

“Understanding the WaterSense Labeled Home”

Escalating drought conditions in the Southwest United States have created a need for more water efficient homes in this area.

As a result of this need, Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center – Dallas has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 6, WaterSense Program to host a symposium for Builders, Municipalities, Utilities, City Council, City Code Enforcement, City Planners and Landscape Architects. This symposium will increase awareness of EPA’s WaterSense Labeled New Home Program, and other voluntary partnership programs, to promote building water efficient homes in our communities that are in harmony with other green home energy saving efforts.

Extreme drought conditions in the Southwest United States are now a fact. A fact recently emphasized by the passage of House Bill 4 by the Texas Assembly, and signed by Governor Perry. This bill, which is a milestone for water conservation policy, provides $2 billion to support various water supply, water conservation and water reuse projects. It is the largest dedicated conservation and reuse project funding in any state to date. It was created because Texas recognizes that as the droughts continue, water shortages will intensify, and unless there is an increase in water conservation measures, including water efficient homes; Texas will suffer extreme physical and economic hardship.

Mark your calendars today for Wednesday, October 16, 2013, to attend this dynamic symposium on “Understanding the WaterSense Labeled Home” and to learn how you can lead your community in promoting and building water efficient homes.
