Multi-Family Showerhead Retrofit
Property owners and managers of multi-family buildings and condominium associations built before 1996 are encouraged to participate in the Large Volume Showerhead Retrofit Program.
High Efficiency Fixture Rebates
You might qualify for a $50 rebate after you purchase and install a WaterSense-certified high-efficiency toilet and receive up to a $25 rebate (actual cost of fixture or $25, whichever is less) with the purchase and installation of a WaterSense-certified or 1.5 gpm High-Efficiency showerhead or faucet.
Household leaks can waste hundreds, even thousands, of gallons of water, resulting in a higher water bill. Follow these guidelines to learn how to spot leaks and repair leaking faucets and toilets.

Indoor water use changes for new developments
The Water-Use Efficiency Standards Manual , developed by the Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department and created in 2009, includes an advisory committee's recommendations and new requirements regarding specific water-saving practices for certain industries, as well as low-impact development practices, to achieve maximum water savings in future residential and commercial development.
The Department is also reviewing the water use assigned to different land uses listed in Chapter 24, Section 24-43-1 of the Miami-Dade County Code of Ordinances. This information will be included in future updates of the manual.
