WaterSense is slated to be cut from EPA’s proposed 2018 budget
Focusing on infrastructure is music to most ears, but there are current EPA programs slated to be eliminated. The President’s Budget for FY 2018 lists 50 programs, including Energy Star, at the EPA that may be eliminated. The WaterSense program has never been congressionally authorized, so it does not have its own budget line item. For the past 10 years it has been funded only at the discretion of the EPA Administrator.
