North Pinellas County’s reclaimed water system has returned to full operation. Through the implementation of a two-day per week watering schedule, reclaimed water system shutdowns, customers’ conservation efforts and the return of seasonal rains, the reclaimed water system for north county is now capable of operating at full capacity.

Reclaimed water customers are still encouraged to practice effective conservation habits by following the seasonal restrictions schedule to promote a healthy, drought-tolerant lawn. This schedule allows irrigation up to three days a week. Residents can view online the recommended irrigation schedule for reclaimed water based on house number.

Residents are reminded that the three day per week schedule is mandatory during the seasonal restrictions periods of April 1 through June 30 and Oct. 1 through Nov. 30. During seasonal rainfall, Pinellas County Utilities customers are asked to turn off their irrigation systems to avoid wasting water resources and overwatering lawns, which may lead to increased weeds, pests and diseases.

Pinellas County Utilities customers using potable, well, lake or pond water for irrigation may irrigate up to two days per week on assigned days based on house number.

If customers have further questions, they may call Utilities Customer Service at (727) 464-4000.
