Irrigation, Variances & Exclusions

Watering Schedule and Restrictions


Effective April 7, 2009, the city set a new watering schedule for landscape irrigation. The ordinance specifies the designated watering times during Daylight Savings Time and Eastern Standard Time. This keeps the city current with the changes made to St. Johns River Water Management District’s watering restrictions. Water restrictions have been placed on outdoor use to help conserve water. These restrictions apply to all types of water used for irrigation.
