The first "WaterSense"-labeled home in the Dallas/Fort Worth area opened to the public last week. Sponsored by the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency Region 6 and the City of Dallas Water Utilities, the renovated home is designed to serve as a working model for water conservation. The house includes such features as hot water on-demand systems, water-efficient landscaping and irrigation systems and rainwater harvesting. A WaterSense home can save at least 50,000 gallons a year for a family of four. — WATRnews.com
