U.S. EPA’S WaterSense® program has declared October to be Shower Better Month.  As a WaterSense® partner, DEC is promoting Shower Better Month in New York as an opportunity to improve the water efficiency in homes across the state. EPA estimates that replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense® labeled model can save four gallons of water per shower. For an average family, this adds up to an annual savings of 2,900 gallons of water and 13 days of energy.
