Educational Programs & Public Outreach
The City of Melbourne has developed and implemented a variety of educational programs and other methods of public outreach to inform, encourage, and reinforce the importance of conservation, pollution prevention, recycling, and overall care for the environment.

Recognizing that one of the most important elements of a successful water conservation program is encouraging the public to take steps to protect the resource, the City has an active and comprehensive approach in its outreach efforts. The City’s Environmental Community Outreach Division promotes and participates in a wide variety of activities within the community.

The City regularly promotes water conservation at environmental exhibits and events where a large and diverse segment of the population is reached. Programs that occur annually include the Better Business Council’s Better Living Expo in February, Drop Savers Poster Contest, Florida Friendly Landscape Seminars, Brevard Zoo Teacher Open House, and other events.

The City regularly provides water conservation educational programs at schools throughout Melbourne’s water service area. These successful programs are typically held in individual classrooms and are very interactive with the students. Summer camp programs are also provided.

The City of Melbourne, in conjunction with the cities of Titusville, Cocoa, Palm Bay, and Brevard County Water Resources, recently produced a video entitled Conserving Water on the Space Coast. The video is used in school programs throughout the county and is available to check-out at the public libraries. The video recently earned the Best in Class award for public education videos from the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association.
