Pasco County implements daytime Watering Restrictions

Restrictions will remain in effect through August 1, 2017

Pasco County Utilities is reminding residents about increased water restrictions.  The Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) voted May 23, 2017 to approve modified Phase III Water Shortage Restrictions.

“In Pasco County, regardless of the irrigation water source, all watering is prohibited between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.,” said Sandra Anderson, Customer Service Administrator for Pasco County Utilities.

Watering during the early morning or late evening hours helps minimize water losses from evaporation and wind-drift. To determine your allowed watering day(s), please visit: bitly.com/PascoWatering and select your water source – potable, reclaimed, or well.

SWFWMD says this is the driest dry season in the past 103 years.  While recent rainfall has provided relief to the region, additional rain will be needed to replenish the regions’ aquatic systems and water supplies.  Due to the severity of the drought, homeowners’ associations and other entities must suspend any requirement to replace lawns, pressure wash, or engage in other activity that significantly increases water usage.
