Seasonal Reclaimed Water Restrictions Take Effect on October 1 in Pinellas County

 

Seasonal reclaimed water restrictions go into effect on Monday, October 1st, and run through Friday, November 30. Due to supply fluctuation and the system design, north and south county customers are under different restriction schedules. In addition, enforcement of watering restrictions is being intensified during this period to encourage responsible use of reclaimed water.

 

North County customers may irrigate two days per week based on property address, according to the schedule below:

  • Addresses ending in an even number may water on Tuesday and/or Saturday.
  • Addresses ending in an odd number may water on Wednesday and/or Sunday.
  • Parcels with mixed or no address, such as common areas, may water on Wednesday and/or Sunday.
  • Watering is prohibited between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on all authorized days.
  • Because irrigation is entirely prohibited on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays in North County, the system will be shut down on these days, as needed for supply recovery.

 

South County customers may irrigate three days per week based on property address, according to the schedule below:

  • Addresses ending in an even number may water on Tuesday, Thursday and/or Saturday.
  • Addresses ending in an odd number may water on Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday.
  • Parcels with mixed or no address, such as common areas, may water on Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday.
  • Watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on all authorized days.

 

Pinellas County Utilities reminds customers that reclaimed water is a limited resource due to water usage, fluctuations in weather and capacity of the system. Customer cooperation in following the watering schedule is critical as excessive demand may require further restrictions. Conservation is necessary to promote adequate supply that is shared by all customers.
