Water conservation
Water conservation pledge: Shut off the water when brushing my teeth

#MyWaterPledge

The St. Johns River Water Management District is all about water, and water has an added focus during April — Water Conservation Month. For Water Conservation Month 2017, we are challenging ourselves and the public to make a pledge to save water and safeguard our future water supplies.

Please join us and register your water pledge below. We’ll share pledges on this page. Then, find more ways to save water by visiting our water conservation web pages.
