Livingston’s WaterSense Partnership

The Township of Livingston is proud to have teamed with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense program to help save water and reduce costs on utility bills. WaterSense aims to decrease indoor and outdoor water use through water-efficient products and water-saving practices.

The program encourages customers to look for WaterSense labeled products, which are independently certified to use 20 percent less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.

Livingston’s Township Code regulates days of the week and times of day that properties may water (quick guide: When Can I Water My Lawn?). This is an important step in improving our water-efficiency awareness. Those with WaterSense Certified Smart Controller systems are exempt from the day-of-week regulations. These specific Smart Controller systems sense the level of moisture in the soil, only allowing the irrigation system to water when actually needed.  Decreasing our overall water use means not having have to buy as much water at high rates during peak periods.

Those who have a WaterSense Certified Smart Controller must Register the System with the Township in order to receive the exemption. Complete the registration form and bring it to the Township Clerk’s Office in Town Hall, 357 S. Livingston Avenue. When a completed form is received, the registrant will receive a Livingston “WaterSense” Registered Property flag, to be placed in a visible spot on the property lawn, near the driveway along the curbline.
