Mandatory Outdoor Water Conservation

Water used on our landscapes accounts for 50% of our household water usage. In 2010, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners passed an ordinance adopting year round irrigation restrictions. It is important for all of us to follow these restrictions in order to conserve our precious water resources, even more so during periods of water shortage. View the entire ordinance.
