Tioga River Water Company Partners With EPA's WaterSense Program

GILFORD — Tioga River Water Company, the owner of Gilford Village Water System and Tioga River Water System, has teamed with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense program to help customers save water for future generations and reduce costs on their utility bills.

WaterSense aims to save water by focusing on reducing water wasted indoors and outdoors. WaterSense is unique in that the program not only promotes easy water-saving practices, but the program also includes a product certification program. When a WaterSense label is advertised on the packaging of a water fixture, customers are guaranteed that the product has been tested to ensure the product uses 20% less water and performs the same or better than similar models.

To kick-off its partnership with the WaterSense program, Tioga River Corporation will soon be releasing details about a high-efficiency showerhead change out program to be offered to customers. "By offering WaterSense labeled showerheads to customers we are helping to ensure enough water for future generations and helping the community save money and resources", said Norman Harris, III, Water System operator.
