When you set your clocks back, don’t forget to adjust you landscape irrigation timers. Also, when Eastern Standard Time begins Sunday, Nov. 6, landscape irrigation will return to no more than one day a week across the 18 counties of the St. Johns River Water Management District. The reasoning is that lawns need less water in the cooler months.
Watering restrictions are designed to allow enough water to maintain healthy landscapes year-round and to ensure the efficient use of water. Restrictions specify the days and time of day when watering may occur and the amount of water that may be applied.
The mandatory restrictions apply to water withdrawn from ground or surface water, from a private well or pump, or from a public or private water utility.
