Due to severe drought, California Governor Jerry Brown mandated water restrictions in an Executive Order issued April 1, 2015. In the Order, the California Energy Commission (CEC) was charged with adopting emergency regulations establishing standards that improve the efficiency of water appliances, including faucets, toilets, urinal flush valves and shower devices available for sale in California.
