The Toro Company was awarded with the 2015 WaterSense Partner of the Year award by the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA recognized Toro’s weather-based controllers that are WaterSense-certified for efficiency.
Toro’s controllers measure rainfall and soil moisture, which keeps sprinklers from overwatering lawns.
“Toro is dedicated to water-saving innovation that meets our customers’ needs and promotes the efficient use of water,” said Phil Burkart, vice president of The Toro Company’s Irrigation and Lighting Businesses. “We are proud to have our efforts toward water smart irrigation and outreach recognized by such an important national agency.”
Toro is one of the EPA’s WaterSense partners. As a whole, the partners helped consumers save 346 billion gallons of water in 2014.
“We are so appreciative of, and continually impressed by, our WaterSense partners’ dedication to making water efficiency a priority,” said Ellen Gilinsky, EPA Office of Water Senior Policy Advisor. “By touching lives with water-efficient products, programs, and practices on a daily basis, they’re helping improve community resilience to extreme weather conditions such as drought and providing a foundation for water conservation that will help save water for future generations.”
