City says skip a week of watering
Because lawns need less water during the cooler months, the Clearwater Public Utilities Department is encouraging residents to participate in the "Skip a Week" program. According to research by the University of Florida, three-quarters of an inch of water every 10 to 14 days is sufficient for a healthy, vibrant lawn. Skipping a week of irrigation will help encourage grass blades to root deeper into the ground and will conserve drinking water supplies. For more information about the "Skip a Week" program, current water conditions or Clearwater's watering restrictions, call (727) 562-4960 or visit MyClearwater.com/ watering.
