PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. - As of Wednesday, April 19th, mandatory water restrictions are in place for parts of Pinellas County. Dry conditions in Florida continue to get worse. According to the latest drought monitor map, Pinellas County is in "severe" drought conditions.
Pinellas County Utilities put in place mandatory reclaimed water restrictions for North County customers because of the limited rainfall and increased customer usage/excessive demand.
North County reclaimed water customers who live north of Curlew Road may water once a week based on their house address.
People living in addresses ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 can water on Wednesday while people living in addresses ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 can water on Saturday. Properties with a mixed address or no address (ie. common areas) can irrigate on Wednesday. All of the watering must be done before 8 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
The North County reclaimed water system will be temporarily shut down on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. According to utilities, the one-day-per-week watering schedule for North County customers will be in effect until seasonal rainfall resumes in the area.
