Effective September 19, 2008, landscape irrigation water restriction hours have been revised by the South Florida Water Management District
. There will be no watering during the hours of 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Landscape irrigation for all property types and sizes is allowed two days a week on this schedule:
- Properties with odd-numbered addresses will be allowed to water Wednesday and Saturday from 12:00 am to 10:00 am and/or 4:00 pm to 11:59 pm
- Properties with even-numbered addresses, no street addresses, or systems that irrigate both odd- and even-numbered addresses within the same zones (such as multi-family units, homeowners associations, and commercial complexes or retail centers) will be allowed to water Thursday and Sunday from 12:00 am to 10:00 am and/or 4:00 pm to 11:59 pm
For the most efficient use of water, avoid irrigating during both time periods on the same day. Most lawns only need 3/4" - 1" of water per week. Low-volume systems such as drip, bubble, and micro-jet systems that apply water directly to root plant zones may be used any time.
