Irrigation Limited to One Day a Week
St. Johns River Water Management District Restrictions

As a reminder, starting Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015, landscape irrigation will be limited to one day a week across the 18 counties of the St. Johns River Water Management District, including Volusia County and Port Orange.

Plants and grass need less water in cooler months and watering restrictions ensure the efficient use of water for lawn and landscape irrigation. One of the most important ways to help meet Florida's water supply needs for today and the future is through conservation.

Lawn and landscape irrigation often accounts for more than half of residential water use. Watering wisely promotes healthier lawns and landscapes and conserves Florida's water resources.

Because lawns need significantly less water in Florida's winter months, landscape irrigation is limited to one day a week on the following schedule when Eastern Standard Time is in effect:
  • Saturday at addresses that end in an odd number or have no address
  • Sunday at addresses that end in an even number
  • Tuesday for nonresidential landscape irrigation
  • No irrigation allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
In addition, irrigation is limited to 3/4 inch of water per irrigation zone and to no more than one hour per irrigation zone. The one-day-per-week restrictions will be in place until daylight saving time returns on March 13, 2016.

The restrictions apply to water withdrawn from ground or surface water, from a private well or pump, or from a public or private water utility, but they do not apply to irrigation using reclaimed water or storm water.

For complete information about the District's watering restrictions and exceptions to the rule, visit floridaswater.com/wateringrestrictions on the District's website.
