Due to the current drought conditions, the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) issued a modified Phase III Water Shortage Order that includes Pinellas County and other surrounding counties under their jurisdiction. The order goes into effect on June 5, 2017.
The order requests that all water users reduce wasteful and unnecessary water use and be prepared for more stringent restrictions if drought conditions worsen.
Customers should monitor Pinellas County Utilities’ water restrictions website at http://www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/water-restrict.htm for up-to-date information, as restrictions can change at any time. The current authorized irrigation schedule using potable, well, lake or pond sources for Utilities customers is as follows:
Addresses ending in 0 or 1: Monday
Addresses ending in 2 or 3: Tuesday
Addresses ending in 4 or 5: Wednesday
Addresses ending in 6 or 7: Thursday
Addresses ending in 8 or 9: Friday
No address (community common areas, etc.): Friday
Unless your city or county already has stricter hours in effect, the allowable watering hours are before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m., regardless of property size.
If you are not a Pinellas County Utilities customer, please check with your water supplier to verify your watering days.
Customers using reclaimed water provided by Pinellas County Utilities should be following the reclaimed water restrictions found at http://www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/reclaim-irrigation.htm.
For more detailed information about water restrictions, call Customer Service at (727) 464-4000 or visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities.
The Pinellas County water program underscores a key component of Pinellas County’s Strategic Plan: reducing, reusing and recycling resources including energy, water and solid waste.
