Well Registration

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



Because the continued lack of significant rainfall has increased demand for water in the Tampa Bay region, the SWFWMD has declared a Water Shortage. Order number 2017-14 requests that all water users reduce unnecessary and wasteful water use, and prepare for tightened water use restrictions if extreme dry conditions continue.

St. Petersburg is in a water caution area as defined by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) and is committed to water conservation.

Please note that the restrictions detailed below 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 for your location.

 Watering with potable (city) water, water from private wells or private connections to surface water sources (lakes,ponds, etc.) is restricted according to property address number as follows:

• Irrigation of established lawns and landscapes is restricted to twice a week for all water sources except reclaimed water.
• Addresses ending in an even number may irrigate on Tuesday and Saturday Only
• Addresses ending in an odd number may irrigate on Wednesday and Sunday Only
• Watering hours are from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and/or 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
