Posted by TechCrunch on May 31, 2018 07:38:37The latest water conservation news is out in the wild and this time, it’s not coming from Miami, Florida.
The city of Miami has just approved a new program for water conservation and it will be one of the first in the country to use recycled water.
In addition to water conservation being one of many sustainability initiatives underway in the city, the program will also help residents conserve water for future generations.
The new initiative is called “Miamigoes Water”, which was approved in June 2018 and will help residents to conserve water and get rid of their plastic garbage cans, among other things.
“Miamifoes Water will help provide people and families with a water-saving tool that will help them live more sustainably in the future,” Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez said.
The city plans to spend $4.8 million on this initiative, which will be implemented over two years.
“The Miami Water Conservancy has been working to save our city’s waterways for generations.
We are committed to using water to support the community and the environment,” the city said in a statement.”
We know that in order to make our neighborhoods and our city healthier, we need to be proactive with our water use.
The Miami Water Conservation and Recycling program will provide us with tools to make water conservation a reality.”
The program is part of Miami’s effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste that it produces.
In March, Miami Mayor and Vice Mayor Carlos Gomez announced that the city will reduce the number of plastic bags that are used to fill plastic bags by 20 percent over the next four years.
According to the Miami Water Department, this program is a pilot program that is aimed at providing people and businesses in the neighborhood with an alternative to plastic bags and other waste that is thrown away by residents.
The program will be available to residents in the Miami-Dade County, Broward and Palm Beach Counties beginning May 1, 2018.
Miami-DADE County, for example, will be the first to begin implementing the program in the county.
“In the past, residents have had to take their trash, their garbage out, and use plastic bags to transport their garbage.
Now, we can turn those waste into something that can be recycled,” said Mayor Gimenez.”
The more we reuse, the better off we are as a community,” Miami Beach Mayor Bob Buckhorn said.
“We are committed that our residents will be using less plastic, and that will save our environment.”
The goal of the program is to “save more than 30,000 gallons of water a day” by 2020.
Miami-Miami Gardens is one of more than 1,100 neighborhoods that will participate in the program, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
