Water Conservation

In St. Petersburg every resident, visitor, and business plays a role in conserving our precious water resources. Since 1986, potable water use has fallen from forty-one (41) to approximately twenty-eight (28) million gallons per day – about a 32% reduction!

St. Petersburg’s Water Conservation Program assists customers with their efforts by providing publications, incentive programs, presentations, and giveaway items. Please utilize the links below to learn more about water conservation in St. Pete!
