Final Specification for Flushing Urinals
EPA released a final specification for flushing urinals on October 8, 2009. Manufacturers that produce urinal fixtures and flushing devices meeting EPA's efficiency and performance criteria can apply to have their products certified to earn the WaterSense label. Before submitting products for testing, manufacturers must have a partnership agreement (PDF) (3 pp, 336K, About PDF) with EPA in place.
