Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to participate in Water and Energy Learning and Behavior Project (WE-LAB)

MIAMI (February 19, 2016)

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) will be participating in the Water and Energy Learning and Behavior Project (WE-LAB) workshop, presented by the City Of Doral from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 20. WE-LAB workshops provide awareness on how water and energy are interrelated in order to empower residents to make informed decisions regarding their use.

WE-LAB workshops (or “labs”) provide engaging science-based, Water-Energy Nexus information to South Florida residents explaining how decreasing the demand for energy and water can positively affect air quality and improve the water supply. Participants also receive a FREE WE-LAB Toolkit (valued at $75) which includes a water efficient showerhead, faucet aerators, a shower timer, leak detection tablets, compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, and a light emitting diode (LED) nightlight, allowing them to take immediate action at home to save water and energy. Toolkit contents may vary by city/county.

WE-LAB participants will learn to track and analyze their water and energy use at home and apply the behaviors learned at schools, workshops and through an online community in order to take action and make improvements.

WE-LAB Workshop:
City of Doral – Saturday, February 20, 2016
10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
