Water Resources

Water Conservation
Water conservation is one of the most important actions we can take to sustain our water supplies, control costs, meet future needs, and reduce demands on Florida's water resources. This guide will provide tips on early leak detection, water conservation, and preservation.

Water Resources in Your Home & Yard
Water is widely used both in and outdoors. So what happens when you have an emergency? Our Water Resources Guide (PDF) gives you great facts on how to fix these problems and who to call for help.
Conservation Tips
Did you know that a small water leak outside of your home can waste over 300 gallons each month? We give you tips on how to make sure that you're saving money and water. Here are a few more tips on how you can conserve smartly and efficiently:
  • Direct rain from gutters to flower beds.
  • Group plants with the same watering needs together.
  • Listen for dripping faucets and leaking toilets.
  • Share water conservation tips with family, friends and neighbors.
  • Turn off water when brushing teeth, washing hair, lathering, and shaving.
  • Use bath towels more than once to reduce laundry washing.
  • Use mulch to hold moisture in flower beds.
  • Use the same water glass all day to reduce dish washing.
  • Wash your car on your lawn and always use a spray nozzle.
  • When you drop ice cubes on the floor throw them into house plants and not the sink.
Your Water Meter
Have you ever wondered how the city gauges your water usage? Your water meter is an important part of finding out how much you use, and even for finding leaks that would have gone unnoticed. Our guide can help you understand how the city reads your meter, and what you can do to try and prevent leaks.

Watering & Other Restrictions
In partnership with the Southwest Florida Water Management District and Pinellas County, the city does all it can to make sure its residents understand the importance of following water restrictions and other ordinances. Not sure what the restrictions are in your area? Our Water Resources Guide gives you the websites to check for all of the up-to-date information you need.
