Water restrictions are less stringent as of Aug. 1, but residents are still limited to a twice-a-week schedule for irrigating lawns.
Water restrictions will change for Pinellas County Utilities customers effective Friday, Aug. 1.

Recent rainfall has improved water resource conditions for the county, prompting the Southwest Florida Water Management District’s Governing Board to end the Phase II Severe Water Shortage Order on July 31.

Pinellas County Utilities customers using potable, well, lake, or pond water may continue to irrigate their lawns on two authorized watering days per week according to the schedule below:

• Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Thursday and/or Sunday

• Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday and/or Saturday

• Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Tuesday and/or Friday

• Properties two acres or greater in size may water half on Thursday and/or Sunday and may water the remaining half on Wednesday and/or Saturday

• Prohibited lawn irrigation between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

• Prohibited lawn irrigation on Monday

Previously restricted water-use activities such as using sprinkler-like devices, wading pools, water slides, etc. for recreational purposes are no longer restricted.

New lawns and landscaping must follow a 60-day establishment period irrigation schedule. Visit Pinellas County Utilities website for schedule details at www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/water-restrict.htm.

As a reminder, Pinellas County Utilities reclaimed water customers north of Curlew Road are still experiencing reduced reclaimed water availability with the system shut down on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays. North county reclaimed water customers are authorized to irrigate two days per week according to the schedule below:

• Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday and Saturday

• Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday and Sunday

• Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday and Sunday

• Prohibited lawn irrigation between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

• Prohibited lawn irrigation on Monday

This schedule is in effect until storage levels recover and the system can return to full capacity. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/reclaim-irrigation.htm.

Pinellas County Utilities reminds residents that water restrictions can change at any time. Customers are responsible for staying up to date on restrictions and watering schedules. Violations of such restrictions or schedules may result in a $193 fine.

As a courtesy, Pinellas County Utilities sends out email notifications when schedules change for potable, well, lake, and pond water. Customers are encouraged to visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/water-restrict.htm and click on “Sign up for Email Updates” to register their email address to receive notifications.
