Residents Urged to Conserve Water in Broward

All residents are encouraged to conserve water in response to severe drought conditions and a Water Shortage Warning issued by the South Florida Water Management District. During February, Broward County received just 0.17 inches of rain, and from October through February Florida’s Lower East Coast received less than half the average rainfall for this five-month period.

Permanent water conservation measures now in place limit landscape irrigation to two days a week. Residences and businesses with an odd-numbered street address may water on Wednesdays and/or Saturdays, only before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Residences and businesses with an even-numbered street address may water on Thursdays and/or Sundays, again only before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Additional information on water conservation and enforcement of water restrictions can be found at and click COUNTYWIDE WATER CONSERVATION.
