Online tools helps residents pledge to conserve water

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is unveiling a new tool to help residents determine how much water they can conserve at home. The new tool is an online water conservation calculator that allows residents to estimate how much water they use, and provides tips on how they can reduce that amount. Participants will then have the opportunity to pledge to conserve at least 10 percent of their daily use. Visit the District's web site at to take your pledge today! Residents who take the pledge will automatically be entered into a monthly drawing. The grand prize is a rain barrel and second prize is a micro-irrigation kit. This new water conservation calculator is being launched in April, which is recognized by the state, District, Tampa Bay Water and approximately 183 local governments and organizations as water conservation month.
