In 1998, the department developed the video "Every Drop Counts…Use it Again, Florida!" The video was created to help educate the public about the use of reclaimed water. For a copy of the DVD, please contact the Reuse Coordinator.

DEP Reuse Brochure
In 1990, the department developed a brochure on the reuse of reclaimed water titled "Florida State of the Environment: Reuse of Reclaimed Water." This brochure was updated in 1996 and again in 2000. In 2010, an updated “Water Reuse” brochure was developed, replacing the 2000 “State of the Environment: Reuse of Reclaimed Water” brochure.
Below is an electronic version of the Water Reuse Brochure for distribution:
Booklet-Style - Printed in color, double-sided, folded in half and stapled down the middle fold.
The department and the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) produced reuse flier templates that utilities, neighborhood associations and others can use to educate customers receiving reclaimed water for irrigation about reuse, including what they can and cannot do with reclaimed water.
In 1999, the Southwest Florida Water Management District developed a reclaimed water guide to provide guidance to new and established reclaimed water systems. The document includes example permits, contracts/agreements, surveys, rates and fees, and ordinances.
