Seasonal reclaimed water restrictions in effect April 1st

Pinellas County seasonal reclaimed water restrictions go into effect on Wednesday, April 1, and run through Tuesday, June 30.

Due to supply fluctuation in both the north and south county reclaimed water systems, the restrictions schedule for reclaimed water users will be different for north and south county customers during this period. Enforcement of watering restrictions is currently being intensified to encourage responsible use of reclaimed water.

Effective Wednesday, April 1, North County reclaimed water customers may only irrigate two days per week based on property address.

Because irrigation is entirely prohibited on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, the reclaimed water system will be shut down on these days, as needed. The system will also be shut down from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on all days of operation for supply recovery. Customers should monitor the reclaimed water restrictions website for up-to-date information about shutdowns and schedule changes at www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/reclaim-irrigation.htm. 
Customer cooperation in following the two-days-per-week watering schedule is critical as excessive demand may require returning to watering one day per week.
