Conservation Communities

The Suwannee Valley is home to more than 300 documented springs, the highest concentration in North America. Conserving and using water as efficiently as possible is vital to ensuring the sustainability of these unique and world-renowned resources.

Local governments and communities can play an active role with citizens and residents to help protect our water resources, such as adoption of lawn and landscape ordinances and promoting water wise practices through education and outreach. 

Proclaim April As Water Conservation Month

Every year, the Suwannee River Water Management District's Governing Board adopts a proclamation declaring the month of April as Water Conservation Month. 

The state's five water management districts, Florida Department of Environmental Protection and American Water Works Association calls upon local governments, residents, business and visitors to protect our precious water resources by practicing and promoting water conservation measures both indoors and outdoors. The District invites all local governments within the region to join us in promoting water conservation by adopting similar proclamations.

Share your proclamation! If your county or city government signed a proclamation, please let us know! Send us a copy of your signed proclamation to Ben Glass at Ben.Glass@SRWMD.org or 9225 CR 49, Live Oak, FL 32060.
