Governing Board Declares Water Reuse Week May 14-20

Orlando, FL - The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board passed a resolution Thursday declaring May 14-20, 2017 as Water Reuse Week in Florida. The resolution urges local governments, utilities and businesses to implement water reuse programs to help protect future water supply of 8.1 million South Florida residents.

"The water reuse operation as a crucial program is no more evident than right now as South Florida is in the grip of a severe drought," said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Dan O'Keefe. "As a responsible Governing Board, it is our duty to do everything in our power to encourage utilities and citizens to reuse as much water as possible. Every gallon reused is a step in the right direction."
