We want to thank David Reed, Account Executive for JEA, for joining us at our last meeting and giving a presentation that highlights the overwhelming amount of water used for outdoor irrigation by Duval County residents. While it is well known that outdoor irrigation is a large part of overall water consumption, the data shows that it can be as much as 50% to 80% of total residential and commercial water consumption! There are few things more important than working to reduce the amount of outdoor irrigation in Duval County, the St. Johns River watershed, or the state of Florida.
So, what can be done?
What will you do to reduce water consumption in 2018? Share your stories with us.
