Beginning June 5 and due to below normal rainfall levels, St. Petersburg water customers will be required to reduce outdoor watering to once per week for lawn irrigation and car washing. The Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) Water Shortage Order #2017-014 applies to all properties with potable (city) water, water from private wells, or private connections to surface water sources (lakes, ponds, etc.). Water restrictions will remain in effect through August 1, 2017, unless changed by SWFWMD.
If you are a St. Petersburg resident located within city limits, the following applies: Addresses with EVEN numbers may irrigate, if necessary, on Saturday, while addresses ending in ODD numbers may irrigate on Sunday. Irrigation should only occur between 5-9 a.m. or 7-11 p.m. Car washing is allowed once per week, on the designated watering day. Other restrictions apply - visit stpete.org/waterrestrictions for more details.
There are no restrictions on reclaimed water use. Reclaimed water customers are encouraged to conserve and water no more than three days per week, between 5-9 a.m. OR 7-11 p.m. Addresses with EVEN numbers should irrigate on Tues., Thurs., and Sat., with ODD numbers irrigating on Weds., Fri., and Sun.
