Current Water Restrictions Year-Round Landscape Irrigation RuleUpdated November 2012
The South Florida Water Management District currently has no water shortage restrictions in place anywhere in its 16-county region.
Residents and businesses should continue to follow the District’s Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule, which limits landscape irrigation to two days a week, with a three-day-a-week provision for some counties. Utilizing the rule’s flexibility, some city and county governments have adopted alternative landscape irrigation ordinances based on local water demands or system limitations.
- Residents with odd-numbered street addresses may water lawns and landscapes on Mondays, Wednesdays and/or Saturdays only before 10 a.m. OR after 4 p.m.
- Residents with even-numbered street addresses may water lawns and landscapes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and/or Sundays only before 10 a.m. OR after 4 p.m.
- Landscape irrigation restrictions apply to water from a utility, a private well, canal, lake or pond.
- Watering is not allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m..
- For the most efficient use of water, residents should avoid irrigating during both time periods on the same day.
- New landscaping can be watered without regard to restrictions on the first day it is installed.
- Landscaping that has been in place from 2 days to 30 days can be watered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and/or Sundays during the hours allowed for regular landscape irrigation.
- Landscaping that has been in place from 31 days to 90 days can be watered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays during the hours allowed for regular landscape irrigation.
- Additional watering days can only be used to benefit new landscaping. An entire irrigation system zone may only be watered if it contains at least 50 percent new landscaping..
This Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule is a component of the District’s Comprehensive Water Conservation Program, approved by the Governing Board in September 2008 to encourage more responsible use of water resources throughout South Florida.
All residents are encouraged to conserve water in any way possible. For more information about Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Conservation Measures, including links to local government website you may visit www.sfwmd.gov.
