Here's what to do with twice-a-week watering schedule

The Hernando County Board of County Commissioners has lifted its one-day-per-week watering restriction for six months. Residents can now water their lawns twice a week, according to the Southwest Florida Water Management District's rules: Watering must be done before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Those with even addresses may water on Thursdays and Sundays; odd addresses may water on Wednesdays and Saturdays; and locations without an address (common areas, rights-of-way) may water on Tuesdays and Fridays. Call Hernando County Code Enforcement at (352)754-4056 or Hernando County Utilities at (352)754-4037.
