About Our Water

Learn More About Plano's Water

Though water covers 70% of the Earth's surface, less than 1% is available for use. The U.S. Government Accountability Office found that more than 36 states expect water shortages by 2013. It's important to start using water efficiently now to protect this precious resource for future generations.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created "We're for Water" as a national campaign to educate consumers about water-saving behaviors and WaterSense labeled products. The WaterSense label makes it easy to identify products that use less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.

The City of Plano is a proud EPA WaterSense Partner. We offer residents free WaterSense approved water saving devices and water utility credit when residents replace a water-guzzling toilet with a WaterSense approved high efficiency toilet.
