II. The WaterSense® Program
The WaterSense® Program is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) partnership program working to increase the adoption of water-efficient products and services across the country. By reaching out to organizations and fostering public-private partnerships, water demand can be reduced and major environmental, public health, and economic benefits can be realized by improving water quality, maintaining aquatic ecosystems, and protecting drinking water resources.

The specific objectives of the program are to: reduce indoor and outdoor water use by making water-efficient products and practices more prevalent; help consumers differentiate among products and services; ensure product performance; promote innovation in product development and design; and support state and local water efficiency efforts.

This internship is for an individual interested in the development of strategies that use market forces to encourage the adoption of more environmentally friendly technologies. The intern will become a member of the EPA team involved in the following activities: conducting and analyzing target market and industry research; developing content for the WaterSense® Web site, other program publications; developing social media; contributing to program outreach materials and program evaluation; and attending meetings with principals to discuss program development; implementation of Web 2.0 technologies.

The intern will gain practical skills and knowledge in the areas of water efficiency, public-private partnerships, market data analysis, and how to convey information to consumers, and website content development. He/she will also gain insight into federal government processes and be involved in the development of a variety of tools and materials to provide better information and guidance to the public on the benefits of water efficiency.
