Tampa, FL April 5, 2010 - April 2010 has been designated Water Conservation Month by Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio and the Tampa City Council. Together with the State of Florida and the Water Management Districts, Tampa is working to increase awareness about the importance of water conservation. Water is a basic essential need and a precious natural resource. April, typically a dry month when water demands are the most acute, is a time to emphasize the need for using water efficiently and taking control of your water consumption.
As the City of Tampa depends almost entirely on the Hillsborough River for its water needs, seasonal changes in rainfall can significantly impact the amount of water available. The Tampa Water Department calls on every business and all residents to work together to make long-term changes that increase water use efficiency in our community.
To help customers reduce water consumption, the Tampa Water Department offers water conservation tools and information including toilet leak detection tablets, low-flow plumbing fixtures and rain sensors. Please visit us online at www.TampaGov.net/SaveWater or contact us at (813) 274-8121 to see how we can work together to conserve our water resources.
