WAVE (Water Alliances for Voluntary Efficiency) is a non-regulatory water-efficiency partnership created and supported by U.S. EPA. WAVE's mission is to encourage commercial businesses and institutions to reduce water consumption while increasing efficiency, profitability and competitiveness.

Water-efficiency measures, like those proposed by WAVE, can reduce water and sewer costs by up to 30%. Significant savings in energy, chemical and maintenance expenses are also possible. The typical payback period is less than 3 years.
