The majority of existing hand washing faucets flow at a 2.2 – 2.0 gallons per minute in compliance with the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct 92). Current code requires a maximum flow rate of 0.5 gpm at 60 psi for un-metered public lavatories.

To help our customers get a jump start on complying with the new law and start saving water today, IRWD is providing free 0.5 gpm aerators for commercial customers to install on faucet heads in their business and multi-family property managers to install on faucet heads of dwelling units. Installing these tamperproof 0.5 gpm aerators will decrease water use without the need to replace the entire faucet. Each customer is eligible to receive up to 12 aerators. Please contact the Water Efficiency Department at (949) 453-5581 if more than 12 are requested.
