Alliance for Water Efficiency Gives Florida a C+ Grade

The Alliance for Water Efficiency and the Environmental Law Institute have released a draft of the report entitled, "The Water Efficiency and Conservation State Scorecard: An Assessment of Laws and Policies." This research effort, funded in part by a grant from the Turner Foundation, identified state level water efficiency and conservation policies and laws throughout the 50 states via a 20-question survey. Water efficiency and conservation laws and policies encompassed in the survey included plumbing fixture standards, water conservation requirements related to water rights, water loss control rules, conservation planning and program implementation, volumetric billing for water, funding sources for water efficiency and conservation programs, and technical assistance and other informational resources.
