Audubon Florida Recognizes City of Stuart for Water Conservation Efforts

In honor of Water Conservation Month, Audubon Florida is pleased to award the City of Stuart with the 2014 Audubon Florida Excellence in Water Conservation Award. Audubon will present the award on April 28, 2014 at 5:30 pm at the City of Stuart Commission meeting, 121 S.W. Flagler Ave., Stuart, Florida, 34994.

Each April, Audubon recognizes an outstanding municipality or utility with the Excellence in Water Conservation award. Recipients must demonstrate a commitment to caring for Florida’s finite water resources.

The 2014 award will be presented to the City of Stuart for their exceptional efforts in promoting a community wide water ethic. By implementing smart conservation techniques, Stuart has successfully avoided the need to build a reverse osmosis plant – saving taxpayers an estimated $13 million. Stuart is changing the way Floridians use and view our water resources, and saving money as well.

“The people of Stuart know all too well how important clean, freshwater is to their community’s economy and ecology,” said Jane Graham, Everglades Policy Manager. “Congratulations to the City of Stuart for their willingness to protect Florida’s precious water resources.”
