South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board Issues Water Shortage Warning

Falling water levels and extremely dry conditions has led the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board to issue a water shortage warning to all 8.1 million residents in the agency's 16 counties, including Palm Beach County.

"The purpose of this warning is to urge South Florida families to voluntarily conserve more water," said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Dan O'Keefe. "This effort will help your water supply last through the remainder of the dry season."

The most beneficial conservation practice is compliance with the District's year-round landscape irrigation conservation measures. These rules can be found at www.sfwmd.gov/mywateringdays. If voluntary water conservation efforts prove insufficient, the Governing Board may consider further mandatory water use restrictions to equitably distribute the remaining water supplies and prevent serious harm to water resources.
