Current Watering Restrictions
The St. Johns River Water Management District watering rules are in effect for all customers, regardless of whether you live within the city or county limits. These restrictions are intended to ensure the efficient use of water for landscape irrigation. The restrictions allow enough water to maintain healthy landscapes year-round. The mandatory restrictions specify the time when watering may occur.

Daylight Saving Time (2nd Sunday in March until 1st Sunday in November)

• Odd numbered addresses: Wednesday and Saturday
• Even numbered addresses: Thursday and Sunday
• No numbered addresses: Wednesday and Saturday

• All propertiesTuesday and Friday

Customers are required to water no more than (1) hour per zone and no more than 3/4 inch of water per zone per irrigation day. Water only when needed, and not between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Reclaim Water Irrigation
The City of Port Orange has over 6,800 reclaim water customers. By using reclaimed water, we can conserve traditional freshwater supplies and provide an environmentally responsible alternative to disposal of wastewater.

Customers using reclaim water are allowed to irrigate (3) days per week under City ordinance.

Residential (12:00 midnight to 8:00 a.m.)
• Odd numbered addresses: Mon, Wed & Sat
• Even numbered addresses: Tues, Thur & Sun

Nonresidential (6:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight)
• Odd numbered addresses: Mon, Wed & Sat
• Even numbered addresses: Tues, Thur & Sun

Reclaimed water has been in high demand. This high demand has caused erratic pressure in the system. In order to maintain pressures which enable irrigation systems to function more effectively, the City will be changing the watering schedules. These changes will go into effect Friday, September 23, 2016.

The change allows only 3 or 4 subdivisions to water on specific days/times. In doing so, the reuse pressures will remain more stable during those irrigation hours and provide better service to our customers.

Signs have been placed in neighborhoods affected by this change and will remain until Thursday September 22, 2016 followed by the new irrigation schedule beginning September 23, 2016.

The specific changes are:
    Zone A
  • Summer Trees
  • Pinnacle Point
  • Sterling Chase
  • Cypress Head
  • Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday (all addresses) 12:00 a.m. (Midnight) to 8:00 a.m.

    Zone B
  • Sanctuary
  • Sable Creek
  • Water's Edge
  • Monday, Wednesday & Saturday (all addresses) 12:00 a.m. (Midnight) to 8:00 a.m.
*Note the proposed changes are for reclaimed water customers only*
