Register Your Private Well
The City of St. Petersburg is requesting all customers using private wells for irrigating their landscapes to register their wells. There is no fee for registration.
Well registration will serve as a means of accurately identifying private well use throughout the City. Registering will also assist water restriction compliance staff in enforcing current water restrictions, and in identifying favorable locations for future private wells. A site inspection may be scheduled to verify the existence of a well.Register your private well
Watering Restrictions - ONCE A WEEK RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT!
Effective June 5, 2017, St. Petersburg is under a Modified Phase III Water Shortage Order as defined by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) and is committed to water conservation.
Please note that the restrictions on outdoor water use are for St. Petersburg water customers located within city limits only. If you live outside city limits or receive your water bill from another entity, please check with your municipality, Pinellas County, or the SWFWMD for current water restrictions in your area.
Due to below normal rainfall, reduced river levels, and increasing water supply concerns, a Water Shortage has been declared by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) for several counties including Pinellas. The Order (#2017-014) will remain in effect through August 1, 2017, unless changed by the SWFWMD.
