Pledge to conserve water this month

The Southwest Florida Water Management District encourages residents to pledge to conserve water during the state's annual Water Conservation Month in April.

Everyone who takes the pledge will be entered into a drawing to win one of 25 water conservation kits. To pledge, visit water matters.org/waterpledge.

Swiftmud has developed an easy, online water conservation pledge for the whole family. Family members can pledge to reduce daily showers by two minutes; replace showerheads with low-flow models; turn off the tap while brushing teeth and shaving; fix dripping faucets; turn off the home's irrigation system and only water as needed; check the home's irrigation system for leaks; run the clothes washer and dishwasher only when full; and use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car.

To learn more about water conservation and order free materials, visit watermatters.org/ conservation.
