Record-high temperatures and below-average rainfall around Tampa Bay have made water conservation more important than ever. Pinellas County Utilities will host its inaugural Go with The Flow: Water Conservation Expo Saturday, March 16, to provide residents with valuable water conservation information and resources.

This free, family-friendly event will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the South Cross Bayou Advanced Water Reclamation Facility, 7401 54th Avenue North, St. Petersburg. Residents will have an opportunity to learn from experts how to use water-saving tools, implement Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles and use the new Utilities Customer Portal to save both water and money.

Event highlights will include:

  • Tours of the facility to get an inside look at how reclaimed water is processed.
  • Presentations by Water Conservation and Florida-Friendly Landscaping experts.
  • A native plant sale.
  • Free mulch.
  • Rain barrel raffles.
