Water Conservation

Connect the Drops to Watts

October is Energy Awareness Month. Were you aware that the shower is one place you might be wasting energy, water, and money every day?

Showering accounts for nearly 17 percent of all residential indoor water use, or about 30 gallons per household per day. That’s about 1.2 trillion gallons of water every year in the United States! What’s more, it takes energy to heat the water when you shower. Consider replacing old showerheads with WaterSense labeled models as a way to save resources and shower better.

County wins Water Conservation award from Audubon Florida

The County received the Excellence in Water Conservation Award from Audubon Florida, recognizing the outstanding dedication to care for Florida's water resources and promoting water conservation.

Miami-Dade residents and visitors have helped conserve an estimated 10 million gallons per day since the implementation of the Water Conservation plan in 2007.

Make the resolution of pledging to save more water

In Miami-Dade County, we use approximately 134 gallons of water per capita per day. Why not resolve in 2015 to use less water? Take the WaterSense pledge, and look throughout our website for simple steps to save!

Checking your irrigation timer

It’s a great time to make sure your irrigation system timer is set correctly. The Miami-Dade Cooperative Extension Service offers some simple instructions for those with mechanical timers.

Having a properly-set irrigation timer also ensures Water Restrictions are being followed.

High-efficiency showerheads pack pressure punch

New-model, high-efficiency showerheads make the money and water savings pour in. And it still means you’ll get your old showerhead’s experience. WaterSense showerheads are independently certified to use 20 percent less water, while meeting federal performance guidelines for spray force and water coverage.
