County reduces availability of reclaimed water in North Pinellas

North Pinellas

Changes Begin for reclaimed water users

Pinellas County is reducing the availability of reclaimed water to North Pinellas users. Starting Monday at 12:01 a.m., customers will have reclaimed water for irrigation only three days per week. Customers south of Alderman Road and west of U.S. 19 will have reclaimed water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 12:01 a.m. until midnight. Customers in all other north county service areas will have reclaimed water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, also in 24-hour intervals. On Mondays, the reclaimed water system will be down for maintenance. This action affects more than 4,800 reclaimed water customers. County officials said the new limits are necessary because of the small amount of rain in North Pinellas in recent weeks has led to higher use of reclaimed water. The schedule change is expected to remain in effect until June. For more details, call (727) 464-4000 or visit pinellas


Man accidentally shot while boating

A man was accidentally shot Friday while boating about 27 miles west of Clearwater Pass. William Theodore, 49, was boating with three others at about 11 a.m., according the U.S. Coast Guard. He and another man were shooting plastic bottles as targets off a 35-foot boat while two others were diving. While trying to clear a round out of the chamber of a .22-caliber Ruger, a man accidentally shot Theodore in the calf, said Coast Guard spokeswoman Tara Molle. The names of the other people weren't released. The Coast Guard got the call about 11:45 a.m. and arrived on the scene about 12:15 p.m. It escorted the boat to Clearwater Harbor Marina. Theodore was taken for medical treatment by Clearwater Fire Rescue. City spokeswoman Joelle Castelli said the injury was not life-threatening.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
