Each year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognizes the best partners in four categories at increasing water efficiency and awareness of the WaterSense label across the country. On October 6th, EPA recognized Judy Benson of Clear Water Products & Services, Inc. located in Winter Springs, as the 2010 Irrigation Partner of the Year.

Ms. Benson founded Clear Water PSI in 1997 with a mission to teach others about outdoor water efficiency. Ms. Benson, an Irrigation Association certified trainer, saw a need for more education in the irrigation industry, because she felt some aspects can be complicated and therefore misunderstood. In June 2010, Benson was the recipient of St. Johns River Water Management District's Bob Owens Award for volunteer work with the Florida Water Star program and is an active member of the District's Water Conservation Subgroup Committee.
