2010 Community Water-Wise Awards Deadline Is June 30th

The Community Water-Wise Awards, sponsored by Tampa Bay Water, University of Florida/IFAS Extension and Florida Yards and Neighborhoods, recognize those who have committed to conserving our water resources and protecting the environment by using the best in attractive, Florida-friendly landscaping as well as irrigation systems or techniques that minimize water waste. Winning landscapes represent the beauty and resiliency of our natural environment. The program is designed to recognize attractive, water-conserving landscapes in various water-use sectors (e.g., homes, businesses, industry and government).

The awards selection process consists of two elements: an online application and an on-site evaluation. The online application takes between five and 10 minutes to complete; it requires applicants to provide basic information, complete a checklist, and upload a recent photo. Finalists will receive an on-site evaluation, which typically takes place during July.
