From the Highlands Ranch Herald (Robyn Lydick):

The Udall-Coffman Water Accountability Tax Efficiency Reinvestment Act of 2009, the acronym is “water,” would create a 30 percent tax credit on the purchase of products that have earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense label. The tax credit has a $1,500 cap. “That’s still an incentive for us as consumers,” [U.S. Senator Mark Udall] said.

The WATER Act has been endorsed by industry groups, water authorities, and local leaders in Colorado — including the mayors of Denver, Centennial, and Greenwood Village; the Douglas and Arapahoe County Commissioners; the Town of Castle Rock; the South Metro Water Supply Authority; the Douglas County Water Authority; and the Southeast Business Partnership.
