Water Restrictions Tightening

SWFWMD has decided to tighten the watering restrictions for Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties. The SWFWMD news release is located here:

Also, attached is a fact sheet for St. Petersburg's water customers, since their restrictions differ from what is normally published; the website is another source of information.

The main points - they will no longer be sending warnings to violators, but will go directly to citations that carry fines. Also, hand watering and micro-irrigation are now limited to between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m.. New lawn renovations shall be postponed. Aesthetic fountains and waterfalls, including those on stormwater ponds (unless ponds are augmented with reclaimed water) are limited to four hours of operation a day.
