Florida Water Reuse Week—3rd Full Week of May
The third full week of May is recognized as Florida Water Reuse Week – a time to bring awareness to Floridians about the importance of reusing this valuable resource. Water Reuse Week is planned to be recognized May 19-25, 2013. However, in the meantime please see last year’s proclamations and information provided below.
Reuse is Responsible Use
Did you know that?
Florida Water Reuse Week highlights the importance of Water Reuse—the utilization of highly treated wastewater effluent for beneficial purposes—to the sustainability of Florida’s water supply and ecosystem. Water Reuse Week was first celebrated in Florida in 2007, the year after DEP’s Reuse Program was recognized by the EPA as a Leader in Water Efficiency. The Board of Trustees of WateReuse Florida in partnership with Water Environment Federation and FDEP supported the Florida’s Governor for the last three years in celebrating Florida Water Reuse Week around the third week in May.
Join in the Celebration
City and county governments, water and wastewater utilities, water management districts, state agencies, engineering firms, and other organizations are invited to join in the celebration. Simply adopt a proclamation declaring and supporting Water Reuse Week. Feel free to modify the draft proclamation to suit your organization’s activities, interests, and needs, and adjust for the appropriate year.
Please, don’t forget to provide a copy of your proclamation to Florida’s Water Reuse Coordinator so that we can list you among the supporters on this webpage.
