Commit to Water Conservation

With our growing urban population, increasing demands for water, and the unpredictability of rainfall from year to year, managing our water resources is the only way we can ensure an adequate water supply is available when we need it most. And while we will have to look at alternatives such as reverse osmosis and wastewater reuse in the future to meet our demands, making better use of our existing water supplies through conservation makes sense and is the most cost-effective and efficient means of reducing our water demands and making more water available for natural systems, drinking, recreation, and commerce.

Following our recent drought condition, this year's dry season has seen rainfall well above normal through January.  Because of the uncertainty of rainfall though, conservation of our water resources is important throughout the year.  Current water conditions can be found

Broward County has a number of programs that address water conservation, both indoors and outdoors.  To learn more about these programs and how you can conserve water, click on Programs and Partnerships.
