Seasonal Reclaimed Watering Restrictions Suspended
The seasonal reclaimed watering restrictions for lawn and landscape irrigation, which began on April 1st, have been suspended by the director of Pinellas County Utilities. Because of uncharacteristic seasonal rainfall, and the reduced demand on reclaimed water supplies at the William E. Dunn and South Cross Water Reclamation facilities, irrigation of established lawns and landscaping with reclaimed water will not be limited to three days a week.
Utilities will continue to monitor rainfall levels and reclaimed water supplies to determine if conservation measures should be implemented. Customers are reminded that the three-day-per-week watering schedule is sufficient to maintain a healthy lawn.
Pinellas County Code 82-3 allows suspension of reclaimed watering limitations if conditions warrant. The seasonal restrictions were originally implemented to help alleviate operational shortages from April 1st to June 30th, and from October 1st to November 30th.
