Florida Water Star is a water conservation certification program for new and existing homes and commercial developments. Standards and guidelines for water efficiency are included for:

  • Indoor fixtures and appliances
  • Landscape design
  • Irrigation systems

If you want to apply for certification or just want to update your home or business, following program guidelines make it easy for anyone to save water resources. The program outlines standards for a broad range of homes — from a condominium with no yard to an older home on a half-acre lot with an aging irrigation system — and commercial properties and community developments. An independent certifier inspects each project prior to certification.

Florida Water Star can be effectively integrated into projects along with other programs such as ENERGY STAR, the Florida Green Building Coalition’s (FGBC) green standards, and the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED program. Florida Water Star’s performance-based approach can enhance projects by providing a suite of efficiency practices that focus on water use areas specific to Florida.
