Water Restrictions Could Cost You!

jeannie fredrick - Friday, June 26, 2015

Everyone wants their lawn and landscaping to look lush and green, but at what expense does that come? In Florida, water restrictions are in place since about 50 percent of all water use is for residential locations. 

For homeowners, the St. Johns River Water Management District has water restrictions in place to ensure that enough water is available to preserve healthy foliage such as shrubbery, trees, lawns, ground coves, plants vines and gardens, year-round. 

Certain restrictions apply and you’ll want to be familiar with them, because violators may be subject to penalties. 

Watering is strictly banned during the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

During daylight savings time (second Sunday in March through first Sunday in November, watering is limited to no more than 2 days per week. Addresses ending in an odd number are allowed to water on Wednesday and Saturday. Those ending in an even number may water on Thursday and Sunday. 

Throughout Eastern Standard Time (first Sunday in November until the second Sunday in March), watering is allowed only one day per week. Odd addresses may water on Saturday and even on Sunday. 

Watering is limited to the necessary amount to meet your yard’s needs. If you are not certain what that may be, the limit is no more than ¾ inch per zone per day or no more than one hour per zone per day. 
Water restrictions do not apply to water removed from wells, lakes or rivers. It applies only to water from ground or surface water, a private well or pump, or from a public or private utility.
