Awards Season Open for Water-Thrifty Landscapes

Tampa Bay Water, in partnership with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) County Extension Offices and Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program, is accepting applications for the 2017 Tampa Bay Community Water-Wise Awards. Residents, businesses and community organizations with water-efficient landscapes that represent the beauty and resiliency of Florida’s natural environment are encouraged to apply online by June 30, 2017.

The awards program recognizes those who are committed to conserving water resources and protecting the environment by using the best in attractive, water-efficient landscaping practices. Landscapes deemed water-wise use less water, require minimal maintenance and protect the environment.

Winners receive a custom-made, mosaic landscape stepping stone during a ceremony presented by county commissioners, city council members or mayors within their local governments.

To apply, applicants should visit tampabaywaterwise.org to fill out a short form and upload photos of their landscapes. If it meets basic criteria, a representative of the University of Florida IFAS County Extension will schedule an on-site evaluation of the landscape and irrigation system.
