Artificial Grass & Synthetic Turf is Acceptable Material for Program Use
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), following the path of their successful Energy Star Program (R) look forward to the launch of the WaterSense Partner Program(R) early in 2009.
The WaterSense Program is a voluntary effort on the part of builders and manufacturers to help US consumers build more sustainable and effective water programs for their communities’ development of new homes.
During a public conference call, held today, EPA WaterSense Program Manager, John Flowers, confirmed that artificial grass and synthetic turf are acceptable materials to include in any new home landscape plan submitted under program guidelines.
The Environmental Protection Agency does not current have a program specification for artificial turf and synthetic grass defined under their newly forming. Without the needed program definitions, the EPA’s WaterSense program does not currently offer the WaterSense Partner Program for synthetic turf installation professionals, suppliers or manufacturers of artificial grass products to join – however – ASGi, SyntheticTurf Council and their members are looking forward to participating in this program in the near future.
EPA Water Sense Program:
WaterSense, a partnership program sponsored by EPA, seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by promoting water efficiency and enhancing the market for water-efficient products, programs, and practices.
WaterSense will help consumers identify water-efficient products and programs. The WaterSense label will indicate that these products and programs meet water efficiency and performance criteria. WaterSense labeled products will perform well, help save money, and encourage innovation in manufacturing.
