 Save Water, Save Money with Free Showerhead Exchange at Earth Day Event


The City of Fort Lauderdale is sponsoring a FREE showerhead exchange for City utility customers at the Earth Day Every Day event on Saturday, April 21st .  The Earth Day Every Day event, which has activities for the entire family, is taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, located at 3109 E. Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. To receive a new, high-efficiency showerhead, simply bring a copy of your Fort Lauderdale utility bill and your old showerhead to the City’s booth and exchange it for a new one. There is a limit of two showerhead exchanges per household, and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.  There are even hand-held models available. The showerheads for the exchange are being offered through Conservation Pay$, which is rebate program developed by the Broward Water Partnership (BWP). The BWP is comprised of 18 municipalities and water utilities that are committed to providing opportunities and incentives to encourage our neighbors to save water.
