ALERT: ONCE A WEEK WATERING RESTRICTIONS - Effective December 1, 2023, St. Petersburg is under Modified Phase I Water Shortage Order #2023-041 as mandated by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD).

Every resident, visitor, and business plays a role in conserving St. Pete’s water. Did you know that St. Pete is in a water use caution area as defined by the Southwest Florida Water Management District? St. Pete imports 100% of our drinking water from outside of Pinellas County, so water conservation is essential to ensure sustainable water access for the future. 

The average single-family household in St. Pete uses about 3,700 gallons per month, or 1,700 gallons per person per month (based on average household size of 2.2 people). Find data here.
