Pinellas reclaimed water system returns to full operation


Reclaimed water fully operational

The reclaimed water system in North Pinellas will return to full operation beginning today. County officials said the system is now capable of operating at full capacity thanks to the implementation of zone control, customer response to a request to conserve, and the return of seasonal rains. Reclaimed water customers are still encouraged to conserve by limiting irrigation to every other day. The voluntary watering on alternate days should follow this schedule based on house numbers: House numbers ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. House numbers ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. House numbers ending in a mixed or no address water on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. The county asks reclaimed water customers to refrain from watering between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. For more information, call (727) 464-4000.
