Seasonal reclaimed water restrictions run Oct. 1 - Nov. 30
Pinellas County seasonal reclaimed water restrictions go into effect on Tuesday, Oct. 1, and run through Saturday, Nov. 30. Due to supply fluctuation in both the north and south county reclaimed water systems, the restrictions schedule for reclaimed water users will be different for north and south county customers during this period. Property owners in violation of restrictions can face a $193 fine.
Effective Tuesday, Oct. 1, North County reclaimed water customers may only irrigate two days per week based on property address, according to the schedule below:
Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, or 8) may water on Tuesday and/or Saturday.
Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, or 9) may water on Wednesday and/or Sunday.
Parcels with mixed or no address, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision, 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, the reclaimed water system will be shut down on these days, as needed. The system will also be shut down from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on all days of operation for supply recovery. Customers should monitor the reclaimed water restrictions website for up-to-date information on shutdowns and schedule changes at www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/reclaim-irrigation.htm.
Customer cooperation in following the two-days-per-week watering schedule is critical as excessive demand may require returning to watering one day per week.
South County reclaimed water customers may irrigate three days per week based on property address according to the following schedule:
