Even though water surrounds our City, it is one of our most precious resources. Currently, the City of Fort Lauderdale must provide drinking water for our more than 175,000 residents and the millions of visitors that come to our City each year. The source of our water is a single underground aquifer system that we share with 5.5 million people in the region. Our future ability to supply water must address many challenges, particularly, increased demand from a growing population and reduced supply due to sea level rise and changing weather patterns. It is therefore essential to conserve this shared resource as much as possible.
The City of Fort Lauderdale has been a member of the Broward Water Partnership since October 1, 2011. Through the Conservation Pays Program, Fort Lauderdale residents have received rebates for installation of an estimated 1,200 high efficiency toilets reducing water consumption by over 50 million gallons. Our next resident to receive a $100 rebate could very well be you!
