Plea for Pasco Customers to Conserve Water During Dry Season

An urgent reminder from Pasco County Utilities as many areas in Pasco continue to experience dry conditions with little to no rainfall: Please conserve water whenever possible and follow Pasco’s watering guidelines, regardless of your watering source.

Pasco County’s reclaimed water supply is critically low.  How and when you water your lawn can put additional strain on the system, especially if your sprinkler system isn’t working correctly.  It’s important to check your sprinkler system’s settings, use the correct watering schedule and water only during your scheduled times.

Here are some effective irrigation tips that can also help you save money:

  • Irrigate only on your assigned watering day
  • Follow the watering schedule specific to your water source (Potable, reclaimed or well.)
  • Watering is prohibited between 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., regardless of water source
  • If water pressure seems low, run sprinklers between midnight – 6 a.m. on your watering day
  • To avoid over watering, use suggested run times specific to your irrigation system
  • Check your system for broken or misdirected spray heads, which can waste water

“Water conservation is always important, and during periods of extremely dry conditions, it becomes even more critical that we all do our part to conserve water – especially outdoors,” said Pasco County Utilities Customer Service Director Sandra Anderson.  “We encourage everyone to consider skipping their watering day or week and consider hand-watering hot spots within the landscape where necessary.”

Pasco County Utilities has a long-standing mission to support customers and provide high quality water, wastewater, reclaimed water and solid waste services.  Visit for service updates and more information on how to conserve water.
