California Title 20 Water-Efficiency Standards
Due to severe drought, California Governor Jerry Brown mandated water restrictions in an Executive Order issued April 1, 2015. In the Order, the California Energy Commission (CEC) was charged with adopting emergency regulations establishing standards that improve the efficiency of water appliances, including faucets, toilets, urinal flush valves and shower devices available for sale in California.
The CEC’s water-efficiency standards, which are comparable to or lower than the applicable WaterSense® program standards, are noted below.
As noted above, Delta Faucet Company offers products that comply with current California water-efficiency standards. Additional shower devices that will comply with the 1.8 gpm standard are in development.
Please see below for additional information about the standards and the products affected by them.
