DFW Becomes First WaterSense Airport

New water fixtures in restrooms at the airport's passenger terminals are saving 5.5 million gallons per month.

The Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport (DFW) recently became a WaterSense Partner in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Region 6 and the first airport governmental organization to become a promotional partner under the national 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.”

DFW promotes WaterSense products and exhibits its 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 are 90 percent complete with 230 WaterSense- labeled urinals and 750 water-efficient water closets and sinks installed.

“Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is very proud to be recognized as an EPA WaterSense partner, and proud to become the first airport to join the program,” said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW Airport.

Located halfway between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, DFW International Airport is the world's third busiest with nearly 1,800 flights per day, which serve 57 million passengers a year.
WaterSense is a voluntary partnership program sponsored by EPA that seeks to protect future water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water. The partners pledge a commitment to showcase water-efficient products, practices, and services. The program also provides a variety of information on water- efficient topics and publications.
