Conservation Pays

February 2016

Win $1000!

Neighborhood water ChallengeFrom April through May 2016, residents in participating Broward Water Partnership communities are eligible to participate in the Neighborhood Water Challenge. There are two categories to compete in: Water Conservation and Outreach and Education

In the Water Conservation category, neighborhood teams of 2 – 5 get together to conserve water. The second category, Outreach and Education challenges contestants to develop and implement an outreach program to help their neighbors understand that conservation and reuse are more than saving water; they are about using all of our water resources wisely.

Each first place winner will receive $1000 cash. Second place winners will receive a water-conserving irrigation system. And, the individual who saves the most wins $500! The contest is sponsored by the Broward Water Partnership, WateReuse Florida and WaterOptimizer.

Contestants can register for the Neighborhood Water Challenge online at ConservationPays.com or download and mail or email the form.

Some members of the Partnership offer $100 high efficiency toilet rebates and other conservation devices like aerators and low-flow showerheads.

Free Trees!

WaterMattersThe 14th Annual Broward Water Matters Day event will be celebrated on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at Tree Tops Park in Davie. Water Matters Day is Broward County's signature water conservation event where residents can learn about our local and regional water resources, how water is managed, and how we are planning for the future. Residents will receive tips on water conservation, find out about rebates and incentives for upgrading to water-conserving devices, and learn how to create “Florida friendly” and drought tolerant landscapes. 

In addition to learning how to save water and money, participants can leave with free native plants or trees just for learning how to do the right thing. To be eligible, attendees will need to visit at least 12 of the event's exhibits and obtain 12 stamps. More than 45 educational exhibits and booths will be on display to help residents learn about water conservation techniques, smart irrigation, native landscaping, and what role they play in protecting and conserving our water supplies.

Other activities include crafts for children, rain barrel and native landscaping demonstrations, the Food Truck Invasion, and a variety of giveaways and raffles. Activities will begin at 9 a.m. and run through 3 p.m.

Admission to Water Matters Day is free, but the park's weekend and holiday admission fee of $1.50 per person will be in effect. Children five and under are free. Tree Tops Park is located at 3900 S.W. 100th Ave. in Davie.
