Water Efficiency

As you would expect, Tampa Bay Water is deeply committed to efficiency in the region’s vital water supply. We research, plan and coordinate water efficiency efforts for the Tampa Bay Region.

Tampa Bay Water’s efficiency efforts focus on protecting the amount of water available for drinking, bathing and living. We do this by:

  • Reviewing new products, technologies and services designed to save water
  • Identifying best practices in water efficiency
  • Distributing the latest information on water demand and conservation through our member governments of Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties, and the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa
  • Encouraging our member governments to implement best-practice recommendations

Tampa Bay Water’s water-efficiency efforts help our member governments to:

  • Educate water users on best practices through educational materials, tips, check lists and guidelines
  • Create incentive and rebate programs on specific water-saving products such as energy- and water-efficient appliances
  • Sustain the region’s quality of life and environment
