Isle of Palms Bridge work effects reclaimed water

As part of the Isle of Palms bridge construction by the city of Treasure Island, the city contractor will start installing concrete piles and steel sheet piles for the next two to three weeks. An existing 12-inch subaqueous reclaimed water line is within the construction area.

To minimize any potential damage if the reclaimed water line gets hit, reclaimed water service to Isle of Palms will be temporarily shutdown starting Wednesday, May 29, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The services will be restored from 7:01 p.m. to 6:59 a.m. each day for the duration of this construction activity.

In addition to reduced reclaimed water availability due to construction, residents are reminded that, effective Tuesday, May 28, Pinellas County reclaimed water customers will have reclaimed water available two days per week for irrigation in 24-hour intervals beginning at 12:01 a.m.

The watering on alternate days should follow the schedule based on house numbers:

  • Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), water on Tuesday and Saturday.
  • Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), water on Wednesday and Sunday.
  • If your property contains a mix of addresses or if an address cannot be determined, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision, water on Wednesday and Sunday.

On Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, the reclaimed water system will be down for maintenance and storage level recovery. Watering is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
