Pinellas County Watering Days Changed

When the Southwest Florida Water Management District allowed twice-a-week irrigation to resume on July 1st, counties and municipalities changed their irrigation schedules accordingly. While you might assume that you are still permitted to the water on the same day you had been watering on, plus one other, that is not necessarily--nor usually--the case. Owners of properties of two acres or less who get their drinking water from Pinellas County can water on Thursday and/or Sunday if the property address is even, Wednesday and/or Saturday if the address is odd, and Tuesday and/or Friday if there is no address, or a mixed address.

Property owners who get their drinking water from other sources may be required to use a different schedule. To find out on which days you're allowed to water, visit SWFWMD's website.
