Water Restrictions Coming

Water Restrictions ComingSWFWMD Governing Board approved Phase III Water Shortage for Tampa Bay Area effective March 13, 2013. Tampa Bay Water’s Regional Reservoir is out of service for renovation and surface water flow (rivers) is such that additional conservation measures are necessary. Regional water will be supplied primarily by groundwater (regional well fields), the desalination facility, and surface water as flows permit.

Phase III means a return to one day a week landscape irrigation with sprinkler systems that use potable or private well water. See link below for more information.
