Water conservation education materials for utilities and local governments

As part of its ongoing efforts to promote water conservation, the St. Johns River Water Management District is making the materials on this web page available to local governments and utilities to help disseminate a clear and consistent water conservation message to the public.

These materials were developed by the District and have been used in recent years by the District and its partners to inform the public about watering restrictions and other water conservation initiatives. These materials may not be altered, but utilities and local governments that wish to use these materials for their own local or regional communications may do so within the parameters of federal copyright laws.

Descriptions given with each product provide an approximate cost incurred by the District in March 2010 as an example and are for reference only. Local governments and utilities will need to seek their own quotes. Files can be downloaded and provided to a printing vendor or a link to this page can be provided to a vendor. The local governments and utilities will be responsible for all costs to produce and distribute any of the products posted on this page.
