Every Drop Counts

WaterSense Partner LogoThe Kansas Water Office is committed to protecting the future of our national and local water supply through water-efficient practices, products, and services. That is why we are partnering with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to bring to you WaterSense, a national program that offers people a simple way to make product choices that use less water - and perform as well or better than your existing products.

Why Should You Care?

  • Using water efficiently will conserve supplies for future generations.
  • Protecting and preserving the nation’s water supply is critical to our economic future and human health.
  • WaterSense labeled products and services perform as well as or better than their less efficient counterparts.
  • Purchasing WaterSense labeled products can help you protect the environment and help you save money on utility bills.

Test Your WaterSense

Think you know everything there is to know about water? You can’t be sure until you’ve played EPA’s “Test Your WaterSense” online quiz! Maneuver the water-efficiency hero Hydro through water pipes and answer water-efficiency questions while avoiding water-wasting monsters such as Sogosaurus and Drainiac.
