Certifying excellence in water conservation, saving resources and protecting the environment

The Florida Water StarSM program is a voluntary certification program for new residential and commercial construction and existing home renovation. The program encourages water efficiency in appliances, plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and landscapes, as well as water quality benefits from best management practices in landscapes. Based on estimates, an average Florida Water StarSM homeowner can save up to 20 percent of water use annually. The program outlines standards for a broad range of homes — from a condominium with no yard to an older home on a half-acre lot with an aging irrigation system. Commercial properties save even more, thereby lowering operating costs by reducing water and energy bills.

Why a certification program? Florida Water StarSM certification provides assurance that a house or building meets the criteria for a higher standard of water efficiency.
