The South Florida Water Management District launched a web site aimed at encouraging water conservation. The site, www.savewaterfl.com, provides comprehensive information on water conservation. We encourage you to take a few minutes to explore the site and to provide a link to this site from your webpage. As South Florida continues to endure a serious drought and new, more stringent, water restrictions are anticipated next month, it is important that we partner to educate the community and to maximize water conservation efforts.
Broward County has many programs to help educate residents on the importance of conservation. Water Matters is an educational program that helps homeowners, policymakers, local businesses, and property managers understand their role in water management and water conservation. For more information on Water Matters, visit broward.org/watermatters.
To find out how you can contribute to the success of our water management system, visit broward.org/knowtheflow. Know the Flow was developed in partnership with the Central Broward water Control District and South Florida Water Management District.
Information is also available on how you can create a Florida-friendly landscape that conserves water, protects water quality and how you can turn your backyard into a wildlife habitat. For more information, visit NatureScape at broward.org/naturescape.
Broward’s water management community has also developed the Integrated Water Resource Plan to look at how Broward’s water resources can be managed most effectively and efficiently – for the next ten years and beyond. The plan is an important step in making sure that water is managed in a way that benefits everyone, while protecting the environment. For more details, visit broward.org/iwrp.
