No Restrictions for City Reclaimed Water Supply

The mandatory April 1 restrictions for Pinellas County reclaimed water customers will not affect reclaimed water usage in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg’s supply of reclaimed water currently meets customer demand. However, because spring is typically our area’s driest time of year, customers are encouraged to continue to voluntarily limit watering to twice weekly and eliminate water use between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., when much of the applied water is lost due to evaporation and wind drift. For more ways to conserve water, visit www.stpete.org/water.

 

Flood Insurance Changes Increase Property Insurance Premiums

Beginning April 1, St. Petersburg homeowners will see increases to their property insurance premiums following mandated changes by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) administered through the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HFIAA) of 2014. How much of an increase each homeowner incurs is dependent on property location and the property's classification. The increased premiums will go into effect upon policy renewal. Homeowners will see no change in their deductibles. More information on the flood insurance premium increase is available here or at 727-893-SAVE (7283).
