Indoor Water Conservation
 

More than 2 billion gallons saved since 2011...


Broward Water Partnership 

Broward County and 18 municipalities and water utilities form the Broward Water Partnership​ to save water, money, and the environment. The BWP promotes indoor water conservation and provides toilet rebates of up to $100 each for qualifying residents, businesses and nonprofits. 

 

Indoor Retrofits

Substituting new or modernized parts for older fixtures, a process called retrofitting, can significantly reduce your home's water use. Some examples:​

 ​Toilets use about 30% of the water inside your home.  Replace your old toilet with a high efficiency toilet that uses 1.28 gallons per flush or less and works as well or better than your older toilet. 

  • High Efficiency Showerheads use up to 50% less than standard showerheads.
  • Aerators are the screw-on tip at the end of most faucets.  Install a low flow aerator than uses .5 - 1 gallon per minute.​

 ​

Why Conserve?

  
  • Lower energy consumption by reducing water treatment and heating needs
  • Lower water and energy bills through more efficient use of water
  • Increase property values through the modernization of water using fixtures and appliances
  • Make more water available during droughts or periods of limited supply​


 How can I save water in my home? 

 Here are some important tips:

  1. Replace old water-guzzling toilets.
  2. Check for leaking toilets and fix. 
  3. Replace dripping faucets. Install water-saving showerheads and faucet aerators
  4. Run only full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher. 
  5. Turn off your faucets while shaving and brushing your teeth. 
  6. Shorten your showers.

Broward County saves you money, too.

Broward County offices throughout the county implement indoor water conservation and provide conservation messaging for visitors and staff.
