Abstract:

Miami-Dade County experienced an exponential population growth during 1900-2000 and a steady growth after 2005. In response to increasing water demands, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (MDWASD) initiated a series of programs to promote water conservation. The Best Management Practices (BMPs) selected by MDWASD included high efficiency showerheads, toilets and clothes washers. This study presents projections for water savings specific to water conservation goals. The water conservation goals were defined as percentage (%) savings per year and estimated for water conservation quantities as well as number of customers needed to participate in BMPs to achieve the targeted water conservation goals. Based on the results in this study, it could be expected that more efforts need to be done to reduce the per capita water use to US EPA's “water sense” conservation levels by 2030.
