Dry Conditions Continue – Water Conservation Crucial
Wet season rainfall continues to be below average across the 16-county South Florida Water Management District, with Broward and Miami-Dade counties experiencing the largest rainfall deficit of more than 7 inches below normal as of mid-July. With water levels continuing to fall, SFWMD water managers have stepped up planning to managing worsening drought conditions such as assembling teams with specialized expertise in drought management and increasing review and monitoring of salinity levels in coastal water utility well fields.
The public is asked to help protect South Florida's water supply by continuing to conserve water, including following the District's year-round landscape irrigation measures that have been in place for several years. Year-round watering rules/local ordinances vary by county, but they are typically two or three days a week. The year-round landscape irrigation rules have not changed, and no emergency water shortage orders with stricter water restrictions are issued at this time.
