Water efficiency throughout the neighborhood
The Toho Efficiency Program (TEP) is a water efficiency program for all new residential single family home projects. The program also includes multifamily construction, commercial and all undeveloped lots including those in projects predating April 2008. This also includes common areas.
- Indoor fixtures and appliances

- Indoor fixtures and appliances that meet TEP criteria are similar in cost to typical fixtures and appliances.
- A TEP home uses approximately 20 percent less water indoors compared to a typical home.
