Dry Season Update - April One of the Driest Months of the Year
For 16 straight years, the South Florida Water Management District has observed April as Water Conservation Month, the height of the dry season. The region historically averages about 18 inches of rainfall during the entire dry season, which typically starts in November and goes through May. As of April 10, South Florida's dry season rainfall was near average with 11.07 inches. Water conservation remains important in April and May, normally two of the driest months of the year.
The South Florida Water Management District continues to operate the regional water management system to maximize water storage while providing flood control during periods of localized, intense rainfall, that can occur during the dry season.
