Reclaimed water service back on tap
The north Pinellas County reclaimed water system will return to full operation at 11 p.m. Thursday. Since Oct. 19, residents have been asked to conserve more than usual because of a shortage of rainfall and to ensure the availability of reclaimed water service, said David Baker, county public information manager. Reclaimed water customers are asked to refrain from irrigating with reclaimed water from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and to limit irrigation to every other day, as requested by the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners. Watering days for houses with addresses that end in even numbers are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; odd numbers, fractions or no address are Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. For more information, call (727) 464-4000, or visit www. pinellascounty.org/utilities.
