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.

How you've helped conserve Miami-Dade County water
Miami-Dade County's water-saving ways have had a tremendous impact on our resources. Residents and visitors have helped conserve nearly 8.5 million gallons per day since 2007, resulting in an unprecedented decline in consumption from 158 to 134 gallons per capita per day.
The result of this conservation effort is that the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department has been able to eliminate and postpone expensive new water supply projects, in turn helping to maintain some of the lowest water rates in the country.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Wed Jun 19, 2013 1:04:45 PM
