Pinellas County reclaimed water seasonal restrictions will begin Wednesday, April 1. These restrictions limit reclaimed water irrigation during authorized hours to three days per week based on house number.

  • Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday, Thursday and/or Saturday
  • Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday
  • Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday

Pinellas County Utilities customers are encouraged to follow these restrictions throughout the year to promote a healthy, drought-tolerant lawn with deep roots. These restrictions are mandatory during Florida’s traditional dry seasons from April through June and October through November.

Violations of these restrictions may result in a $193 fine. More information on reclaimed water available online or call (727) 464-4000.
