Tampa’s Water Department to Offer Webinars on Water Conservation

Tampa households and businesses, according to the city, use much too much water.

According to leaders, the problem stems from an extremely dry wet season. This year, the city has had to purchase water twice, which may potentially result in increased expenses.

“We can all think about water conservation every day and take the time to understand how much water do you need and how much water do you use,” said Julie Palaschak, a water department employee.

Throughout the month of September, the city is offering free water conservation webinars to help residents save water and cut their utility bills.

Here is the list of webinars with dates and times:

  • The “Fall into Water Conservation” workshop series kicks off this week and will be offered once a week through mid-November.
