DALLAS, Texas -- The Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport has become the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's newest WaterSense Partner in EPA Region 6 and the first airport governmental organization to become a promotional partner under the national WaterSense Program.

"As one of the world's busiest airports, any steps Dallas/Fort Worth International takes to become better stewards of our water resources has a huge impact," said EPA Regional Administrator Al Armendariz. "By becoming WaterSense partners, they have set a standard in environmental management for other airports to follow."

As a WaterSense Partner, DFW promotes WaterSense products and exhibits their water efficiency efforts to millions of travelers each year. The airport is currently saving 5.5 million gallons of water per month, after installing new water fixtures in the restrooms of all five of its passenger terminals. Terminal restroom renovations at DFW are currently 90 percent complete with 230 WaterSense labeled urinals and 750 water-efficient water closets and sinks installed.
