Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program for its efforts to promote water efficiency.

The PSD earned a 2019 WaterSense Honorable Mention Award for its “success in going above and beyond in promoting WaterSense and water efficiency,” said WaterSense Program Manager Veronica Blette.

The PSD uses a variety of approaches to encourage efficient use of water, including newsletters, social media, and smart-landscaping workshops. The PSD’s Oak Park Drive site achieved certification as an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary in 2019, which involved projects such as partnering with Clemson University Cooperative Extension to provide a customer workshop on the Carolina Yards program that encourages a set of principles for residents to use to create watershed-friendly landscapes.
