April is Water Conservation Month: Do Your Part, Be Water Smart

Don’t be fooled by living in a state surrounded by water — water is scarcer than you think. Florida springtime is usually dry and warm, and this year’s spring is expected to have below-normal precipitation and above-normal temperatures, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

“Water use in our area spikes during the spring dry season,” said Courtney Stevenson, conservation and sustainability specialist at BSU. “In fact, up to 50% of potable water goes toward residential irrigation.”

To remind us to conserve water during this dry season, the state of Florida, water utilities and conservation organizations designated April as Water Conservation Month.
