Reclaimed water restrictions begin Monday


Limits begin on Reclaimed water Monday

The seasonal restrictions for Pinellas County reclaimed-water customers will begin Monday. The restrictions help avoid reclaimed water shortages during Florida's traditional dry seasons of April to June and October to November. From Monday to June 30, irrigation with reclaimed water supplied by Pinellas County is limited to three days per week, based on the resident's home address. Watering is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. No reclaimed watering is permitted on Mondays. If your house number ends in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. If your house number ends in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. If your property contains a mix of addresses or if an address cannot be determined, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision, water on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Contact Pinellas County at www.pinellas or call (727) 464-4000.
