The St. Johns River Water Management District and Lowe’s are teaming up for a “Waterwise Expo” on May 22 to help homeowners learn ways to save water and money.
From 10 a.m.–2 p.m., District staff and Lowe’s employees will be on hand at the Lenox Avenue store in Jacksonville to help consumers choose water-conserving fixtures, appliances and landscape items for their homes and businesses.
Volunteers with the District’s Watershed Action Volunteer Program, JEA staff and Duval County Extension Service master gardeners will also assist at booths teaching homeowners how to set their irrigation timers, make rain barrels, fix leaky toilets, repair broken sprinkler heads and understand water-efficiency product labeling.
Consumers also can learn how to choose the right plants for their landscapes, the right fertilizer and how to use it correctly, and the right bathroom and kitchen fixtures for their homes.
The store is located at 5155 Lenox Ave., and the event is free.
