IA publishes comments on proposed WaterSense spray sprinkler specs

The Irrigation Association sent comments to the EPA in response to its NOI to Develop a Draft Specification for Spray Sprinkler Nozzles. 
The association’s comments suggest the group develop a “voluntary, consensus-based American National Standards Institute standard that defines spray nozzles efficiency.”

The Irrigation Association, Fairfax, Virginia, sent comments to the Washington, D.C.-based Environmental Protection Agencys WaterSense program in response to its Notice of Intent to Develop a Draft Specification for Spray Sprinkler Nozzles. 

“The WaterSense label is an important tool that helps consumers make informed choices that conserve water,” says Nathan Bowen, Irrigation Association advocacy director. “We are committed to working with EPA and WaterSense to ensure workable specifications for the industry, communities, utilities and ultimately consumers.” 

The association’s comments suggest that a “voluntary, consensus-based American National Standards Institute standard that defines spray nozzles efficiency” could be used as a basis for a WaterSense specification.  

“The standard development process would forge consensus and help resolve issues IA members have raised in their individual comments on this NOI,” the letter reads.
