You may have noticed it hasn’t rained much. That means more drinking water keeping our plants hydrated and happy. On top of that, most of us are spending more time at home. This leads to more toilet flushes, more dishes washed, more water down the drain… all equaling higher utility bills!
Luckily, the City of Dania Beach and the Broward Water Partnership are here to remind you of ways to save and protect our water resources during the dry season:
- Replace old, inefficient toilets with new high-efficiency models. You could be eligible for a $100 rebate! ConservationPays.com
- Installing water saving showerheads and aerators (psst –Dania Beach offers these for free!) Call 954-924-6808
- Following year-round irrigation restrictions and watering your lawn on the proper days.
You can keep your lucky streak going by making these changes, saving you water and money. What are you waiting for?! Start saving today.

Toilet Rebate ProgramResidents are also eligible for up to two $100 rebates on WaterSense High Efficiency Toilets, Preapproval is required. The maximum flush of the new toilet must be 1.28 GPF (gallons per flush).. Additional rules apply.
- Automatic dishwashers use 15 gallons for every cycle, regardless of how many dishes are loaded. So get a run for your money and load it to capacity.
- Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
- Check every faucet in your home for leaks. Just a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons a day. Fix it and you can save almost 6,000 gallons per year.
- Check your toilets for leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank. Watch for a few minutes to see if the color shows up in the bowl. It is not uncommon to lose up to 100 gallons a day from an invisible toilet leak. Fix it and you save more than 30,000 gallons a year.
- Use your water meter to detect hidden leaks. Simply turn off all taps and water using appliances. Then check the meter after 15 minutes. If it moved, you have a leak.
